Only praying for one that is worthy!  The past Verne movies never did justice.

(I hope this information wasn't sent before!!)

After a friend passed me some info that a 20k movie, http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2566204/?ref_=nm_ov_bio_lk2
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 Kostuch

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 2017.

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&v=xMCdwvEjHW8
Complete with jet fighter, and air to ground missles!

He DID produce Mysterious Island: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1705125/?ref_=nm_flmg_prd_5
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

Enjoy... Andrew
