Production On Disney's 20,000 LEAGUES UNDER THE SEA Remake Pushed To 2014

We have an update on Disney and director David Fincher's adaptation of 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea. Despite originally being set to begin production this summer in Australia, the Jules Verne adaptation is now "on the backburner" for a 2014 start date.

Those who have been looking forward to Disney's remake of 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea will be disappointed to hear the following news. According to The Sydney Morning Herald, the David Fincher-directed adaptation of the excellent Jules Verne novel will no longer begin production this summer in Sydney, Australia. Instead, the film is said to be "on the backburner" and that filming won't start until next year. The reason for this delay is casting issues following frequent Fincher collaborator Brad Pitt's passing on the role of Ned Land. Channing Tatum has since come up as a rumored contender for the film (presumably as Land), but we haven't heard anything since. If all goes according to plan, 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea could now be released sometime in 2015 or 2016. Are you looking forward to this new take on the iconic story?

You know with this being delayed, it would give Fincher time to film a sequel with a certain dragon tattooed girl.
