Not too long ago, we heard that director David Fincher was seeking frequent collaborator Brad Pitt to star as Ned Land in his anticipated remake of 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea, which is an adaptation of the classic Jules Verne novel. Walt Disney Pictures are currently trying to decide whether or not to greenlight the movie, and Fincher isn't pursuing any other projects in the meantime. Now, speaking to MTV while promoting his latest film, Killing Them Softly, Pitt is asked if he would be interested in 20,000 Leagues. Not surprisingly, he's very much into working with Fincher for a fourth time (after the two worked together on Se7en, Fight Club and The Curious Case Of Benjamin Button).

"I’d love to. I mean, he’s my man. He’s got a great take on it. That’s just gonna be about schedule and time allocation, but he’s my man."



Pitt is currently working on reshoots for Paramount's World War Z, but after the zombie action thriller and Ridley Scott's The Counselor, he doesn't have a clear choice for his next project yet. Here's hoping that Disney do greenlight 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea.

1 league is 3 miles,so 20,000 leagues would be 60,000 miles.

No, it's you who didn't do your research or read the book.

The title refers to the distance travelled while under the sea and not to vertical depth. The greatest depth mentioned in the book is 4 leagues, but, they travelled 20,000 leagues throughout the seven seas. They didn't descend 20,000 leagues cos that would be, y'know, stupid.

@marvel72: You should definitely give it a read. One of my favorites when I was younger.

Yet you felt qualified to say Verne didn't know what he was talking about.


To draw analogy, have you not heard the saying, 'never judge a book by its cover'?

@ instancejustice

exactly you shouldn't judge a book by its cover or title.

"20,000 leagues under the sea" to be under the sea wouldn't you need to be below the sea bed. :D

@ nerdalert

& i'm gonna lose sleep tonight because of it.

The answer to that would be no, because then it would be called "20,000 leagues under the sea-bed" and also because the 'sea' in a general sense means a large body of water of no specific size meaning once you are in the sea you can also be under it.
