Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson Cast in "20,000 Leagues Under the Sea"Submit Comment
According to ProductionWeekly [via IESB], Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson has been cast in the upcoming Walt Disney Pictures' film "20,000 Leagues Under the Sea." It was previously reported that Will Smith was considered for the role of Captain Nemo.

Plot: A fugitive whaler teams up with a naturalist, a mysterious woman and a captain of a futuristic submarine, to search for a lost underwater civilization that holds libraries of vast knowledge and a weapon with the power to destroy mankind.

The new movie is directed by McG (Terminator Salvation) for Disney, which is fast-tracking the project in hopes to finish the film by the end of the year.

What the heck? Is this really what the movie is about? Sigh.....(shakes head).... I will say this but only once, Disney pull the plug start over and Get Gore Verbinski. Go with the "Pirates" style for the film (even to the point of casting Bill Nighy as Nemo) because then the movie will be super awesome. Did we not all look at the Kraken scenes and think "20,000"? I mean thats how it should look. Now you just making a big budget screw up. Total screw up this story even sounds stupid.

first the post says it is an "upcoming Walt Disney Pictures' film"; then it says "the new movie is directed by McG (Terminator Salvation) for Warner Bros.". So which studio is making it?
