Will They Go ‘40,000 Leagues Under the Sea’ this Time?


The remake machine just popped out another kid as New Line is ready to move forward with a remake of 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea based on a pitch by Craig Titley.

The updated version of the Jules Verne novel was set up with Sam Raimi and Josh Donen through their Buckaroo production house, but the deal doesn’t include a directing component for Raimi.

Apparently this update will look look more closely into the background of Captain Nemo as well as that of his prisoners aboard the Nautilus. The original was released in 1954 and centered on the story of a 19th century expedition to find a mysterious sea creature that’s been attacking ships.
