Braveheart writer goes underwater for Nemo
From THR comes word that Randall Wallace has been hired to rewrite Captain Nemo: 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, the upcoming Disney take on Jules Verne’s classic character.
The film aims to tell the origin of Nemo and his submarine warship, the Nautilus. Verne wrote him in the book as a mysterious and noble antagonist who was a genius with a thirst for knowledge and desire for revenge against the forces of Imperialism.
Bill Marsilii and Justin Marks had previously worked on the script. It is being helmed by the infamous McG (Terminator: Salvation) who is aiming for an action-adventure tone.
Wallace is known for having written films like Braveheart and Atlas Shrugged. He is set to direct Secretariat after this project is completed.
