The ongoing drama behind Disney’s remake of its landmark 1954 feature 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea has taken another turn towards surfacing on screen after all. The project recently took a dive when incoming Disney Studio chief Richard Ross torpedoed Dick Cook’s proposal for a McG-directed blockbuster, but now it is reported that David Fincher has come aboard to steer a new version. And no sooner had that been announced than 20th Century Fox stated it was developing its own take on the public-domain Jules Verne novel with the Scott Brothers, Tony and Ridley, producing and Timur Bekmambetov rumored to be eying the director’s chair. Further to those reports, THR has more on each studio’s status on their respective Leagues projects.
