20,000 Leagues Under the Sea 2.0

twenty_thousand_leagues_under_the_seaDisney not happy with the truckloads of cash they already carting away on daily basis are remaking the old classic. I am sure its going to be wonderful and I can hardly wait.  The film, called 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea: Captain Nemo, is an origin story of Nemo as he creates the Nautilus.  In addittion to the prequel being the worst thing to happen to the movie industry, this loose adaptation of Verne’s novel is likely to suffer from the lack of Kirk DouglasThankfully, Will Smith is wanted to play Captain Nemo and Paris Hilton is slotted to play a flashy but cognitively limited invertebrate.  If you can’t wait till 2010, check out this flikr pool for the 20,000 Leagues.

  1. Didn’t the guns shoot out nets? In retrospect, 20,000 Leagues was the movie that propelled my interest in marine biology. I watched it at least once a week as a kid. My grandma even kept a copy around so I could watch it when I stayed with her.

  2. When I first heard the subtitle I was anticipating that those creative geniuses at Disney would replace captain of the Nautilus with a CGI clownfish. Hopefully they don’t mess it up – the original is one of my favorite movies. I am cautiously optimistic about this remake.
