DAVID FINCHER TO DIRECT "20,000 LEAGUES UNDER THE SEA" IN LINES WITH "STAR WARS"

It seems, David Fincher ("Fight Club", "Zodiac") has had enough of violent and dark movies, so he has decided to head over to Disney and make a huge career change. Believe it or not, according to "The Hollywood Reporter" he is in negotiations to direct the ultra expensive adaptation of "20,000 Leagues Under the Sea" instead of McG who has recently been kicked out from the project.

Based on Jules Verne's classic epic the new version will follow a group of men led by Captain Nemo, who battle a scientific genius and his giant submarine but differently from McG's idea to explore the origins of Captain Nemo, David Fincher's take on the material will be surprisingly less dark and more in lines with "Star Wars". They are planning to make a visually stunning movie, and are ready to start shooting before the end of this year.

  4. Alex, Neb, I don't have much hope in Fincher like you, but I'm keeping my fingers crossed :)

  5. I'm looking forward to this version of the Jules Verne story for sure.

    Hey Dez, I don't think that your poll is working properly because I have voted for Jon Hamm 5 or 6 times but it still shows as 2.

    I'm not sure how is that possible. Maybe you should wait before the whole page downloads, and then place your vote, but surely the mistake couldn't have happened five or six times?!?
    ps I didn't know you had hots for Hamm :)))) Just jokin' off course :)))

  7. I tried again after a couple of minutes on your site, but still it only shows two votes. I'm voting for him because he is more 'mature' like myself ;0)

    I'm thinking it's a plan to make sure one of those 'young guys' wins (although 6 more votes still puts him way behind J. Rhys Meyers...

  8. 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea seems like one of those titles that's perfect for a remake. And the idea of Fincher tackling this fascinates me.

  9. Alan, I'm deeply offended by your insinuations, as you know, Blogger's poll gadget leaves absolutely no control to the authors of the blogs and polls, and they cannot manipulate with the results nor with the whole voting. Once the voting starts, I have absolutely no involvement in the poll.
    I've just tried to vote for Hamm to see if it works, and the 3rd vote for him was written down regularly. If this happens again, take a look what's written under the poll: VOTE ON THIS POLL means the vote wasn't taken, and you have to vote again, CHANGE YOUR VOTE, means the vote was taken and you can either leave the page or you can change the vote if you want. So if your vote wasn't taken by some technical mistake, you must go down, click on VOTE IN THIS POLL and vote again.

    agreed, this is one of the more logical remakes.

  10. I'm not sure about that voting system Dezz. You claim it works that way, but who knows. What if you are some kind of computer wiz? You could make the system work to your favor. :))

    About this remake... I'm glad it's being done, but I seriously don't believe it's going to as interesting as Empires Of The Deep.

  11. Bels, saying that I might be a computer wiz, after these five years you've known me, is probably the funniest thing you've ever said :))

  12. That sounds awesome and the picture is fantastic! I have always loved the idea of 20,000 leagues but the old movie is so dated! It needed a facelift.

  13. yep, I also think it's a great pic, but not to be confused - it's not from the movie :)

GIVE SOME LOVE TO YOUR DEZZY :)
