Randall Wallace to Rewrite Captain Nemo

Randall Wallace (Braveheart) has been brought aboard to rewrite Captain Nemo: 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, Disney’s take on the classic Jules Verne character being directed by McG, says The Hollywood Reporter.

The film aims to tell the origin of Captain Nemo and his submarine warship, the Nautilus. Nemo is a mysterious but noble antagonist in the book, a scientific genius with a thirst for knowledge and a desire for revenge against the forces of imperialism.

The script previously was worked by Bill Marsilii and Justin Marks.
