My feelings are, especially in this area of #MeToo and #TimesUp, that a new
movie version of 20K should start off with the big reason about why Nemo
became Nemo, namely the Sepoy Revolt. If he had not got involved in that
then he would not have seen his palace ransacked, if his palace hadn't been
ransacked he would still have a wife and children, and if he still had a
wife a children I think it's clear he would have tried for a diplomatic
solution to the world's problems.

Okay. a Quick correction
The dollar figures per actor, are their "worldwide box office receipts".
i.e. showing how valuable that choice might be.
The budget on the movie is quoted as $100 million

(I hope this information wasn't sent before!!)
After a friend passed me some info that a 20k movie,
Was being made.
I did some digging.
Imdb says that it is "in development"
Since I don't have IMDB Pro, I wasn't able to look up more information, BUT
by creative use of window shrinking, I was able to see enough information
UNDER the IMDB Pro popup to get the name of the producer: George Michael
Searching further, I found this cool link of the movie proposal:
https://k7pictures.com/20000leagues/ (the look book)
The proposal was made for production in the year 2015, but other
information on k7 website, seems to indicate it is in pre-production in
In the proposal, are suggestions for Captain Nemo, ranging from Johnny Depp
at 192 Million to Gary Oldman at 246 million to 5 different bollywood
actors, but no estimated cost for them!
Aronnax could be Andrew Lincoln, or Guy Pearce, or Christoph Waltz, etc...
A character named Mara: Mila Kunas, Emma Stone, Lauren Cohen . etc..
Kind of fun to read through..
He compares it to the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise, and even suggests
after marketing like restaurants, and theme parks!!
.. Fun wow..
See a CGI "trailer" here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=7
Complete with jet fighter, and air to ground missles!
He DID produce Mysterious Island:
It premiered on SyFy channel in 2012, starring: Gina Holden, Lochlyn Munro
etc. and "shattered viewer records with over 2 million viewers"
Come on. who couldn't look forward to potential sequels:
20,000 Leagues Under the Sea: The Nautilus Lives
20,000 Leagues Under the Sea: Nemo's Revenge
