Variety is reporting that film director McG (Terminator Salvation) will be directing 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea: Captain Nemo, from Walt Disney Pictures.

Based on the novel by Jules Verne, this new adaptation should focus on Nemo as he creates his warship, the Nautilus.

Published in 1870, Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea (original French title: Vingt mille lieues sous les mers) has seen numerous adaptations for TV and to the Big Screen, notably the 1954 film from Richard Fleischer, starring Kirk Douglas as Ned Land, James Mason as Captain Nemo, Paul Lukas as Professor Aronnax, and Peter Lorre as Conseil. This film was the first live-action movie from Walt Dinsney.
