Channing Tatum Being Considered To Star In David Fincher's 20,000 LEAGUES UNDER THE SEA
With Brad Pitt passing on the project, David Fincher is now looking at a group of actors including G.I. Joe: Retaliation's Channing Tatum for Disney's 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea. We also have an update on how close the film is to production.
Today, a report went online revealing that Disney was considering shooting their 3D tentpole 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea (directed by David Fincher) in Australia this year. Now, The Playlist has chimed in with their own exclusive info, confirming that frequent Fincher collaborator Brad Pitt has passed on the role of Ned Land. The site says that the Jules Verne adaptation is greenlit even without Pitt, and that Fincher is looking at a group of actors to join the sci-fi film. The only one that is named is Channing Tatum, who will be seen next month in Paramount's G.I. Joe: Retaliation 3D. The problem is that all of these actors won't be available to film 20,000 Leagues until next year; it could have been shot this summer if a lead was set. Right now, Fincher is weighing in on his options, including Gone Girl at Fox and The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo sequel at Sony, the former which he can work on directly before Leagues. The film has a script written by Andrew Kevin Walker (Se7en). Stay tuned to CBM for more new as we have it.
