Who Does McG Want for Captain Nemo ?


Latino Review talked to Terminator Salvation director McG, who let slip that he wants Will Smith to star in his just-announced 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea: Captain Nemo at Disney.

“The character Nemo in this film is more about obsession, he is obsessed and people tend to forget that when you become so obsessed you end up being the villain,” McG told the site, adding “Man I’m trying to get Will Smith to do it, been trying to get a hold of him. I’ve been wanting to work with him for a long time already. That guy’s great.”

The film is an origin story of Nemo as he creates his warship, the Nautilus. The characters come from the Jules Verne novel.
