Justin Marks has come on board to rewrite Disney’s redo of “20,000 Leagues Under the Sea: Captain Nemo.”
The remake will serve as an origin story of Nemo as he creates his warship, the Nautilus. Characters come from the Jules Verne novel and the 1954 actioner, that was the first live action film made by Walt Disney. Studio is fast-tracking the project that McG will direct.
Disney hopes to make the film this year and is McG’s follow up to “Terminator: Salvation.”
Marks is also penning scripts
for “He-Man and the Masters of the Universe,” “Voltron: Defender of the
Universe,” “Street Fighter” and a Green Arrow actioner.
