McG on 20,000

Are you still harboring a grudge against McG for tainting your beloved TERMINATOR franchise? Well thankfully, his next project is something you’ll probably care a bit less intensely about, unless you’re one of those rare Jules Verne fanboys that should all have died out eighty years ago.

McG spoke to IESB about his vision for 20,000 LEAGUES UNDER THE SEA and how it relates to both the old Disney movie and the actual novel. “It's a bit of a departure from the Richard Fleischer movie, and much more in keeping with the spirit of the novel, as far as what Aronnax is up to and the becoming of Captain Nemo, and how the man became at war with war itself. So, there's a little bit more meat on the bone, in regard to the genesis of the Nemo character, than you're given in the ‘50's movie that Disney made. Also, it's a little more contemporary.”

Yup, that’s right, a Captain Nemo origin story, though I don’t know why you would have expected anything else. He doesn’t discuss the cast at all (is Will Smith really still being considered?), but he does promise the movie will be “action packed.” Though asking if a McG movie will have action is like asking if the next Pixar movie will have any likable characters. Head over to IESB for more.

Extra Tidbit: McG also claims that he's heard all the bitching about TERMINATOR SALVATION and is taking it to heart for T5, which he promises you'll like more. Mmmkay.
