McG's "20,000 Leagues Under the Sea" Remake is Dead

Posted: November 17th, 2009 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
McGSubmit Comment
Back in January, four months before "Terminator Salvation" hit theaters, director McG announced that he will next helm a remake of "20,000 Leagues Under the Sea" for Disney. Talks of the project continued for several months, with rumors of Will Smith, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson and Sam Worthington playing Captain Nemo. But these talks stopped soon after.

Disney has now confirmed that it will not proceed with the film at this point, and McG will move on to his other project, "Dead Spy Running," a drama that Stephen Gaghan (Traffic) is writing.

McG is still attached to the "Terminator Salvation" sequel, but since the franchise is being auctioned off, there is no guarantee that he will return for another installment. Especially since the first film underperformed.

Praying for new headline:
''McG to be dumped 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea.''

I didn't mind Salvation but I cannot stand the guy.

i think the dialogue bothered me more so than the action.. which was well done, wasn't so extravagant like a Michael Bay flick.. which is a good thing

I know I'm essentially reiterating what RickyGabrielBird said, but f*ck it: WP, any chance you can remove the words "20,000 Leagues Under the Sea" from this headline? Please?

Sigh...a man can dream. A man can dream.

Captain Nemo was not a white man. He's Hindi.

I cracked a fat when i first saw this headline because i didn't see "20,000 Leagues Under the Sea Remake".

Ohh well, maybe a competent director will pick it up.

Whoever gets the Terminator rights should make it into the Back to the Future crossover like that cartoon. At this point I feel that is the only good Terminator story left to tell.
