The Rock Journeys to '20,000 Leagues Under the Sea'


The Rock


While director McG has made it clear that he would like to see Will Smith in the lead role of '20,000 Leagues Under the Sea: Captain Nemo', recent report suggested that 'The Rock' is attached to star.

"20,000 Leagues Under the Sea: Captain Nemo" may have found its star on Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson. In the latest issue of Production Weekly (PW), the former-wrestler-turned-actor has been listed as being attached to the Walt Disney Pictures adventure fantasy film, though it is still unclear what character he will carry out.

There is possibility that the Jack Bruno of the recently-released "Race to Witch Mountain" will be portraying the titular character, Captain Nemo, since he already has a good track record with Disney. Still, director McG has earlier confessed his hope of having Will Smith as the scientific genius in the project.

Based on the Jules Verne novel of the same name, "20,000 Leagues Under the Sea: Captain Nemo" has Justin Marks serving as its screenwriter. Marks has been hired to rewrite Bill Marsilli's original draft. The movie is eyed to get behind the cameras by the end of the year with "Terminator Salvation" director, McG, helming.

PW has broken down the plot, writing "The movie will deals A fugitive whaler teams up with a naturalist, a mysterious woman and a captain of a futuristic submarine, to search for a lost underwater civilization that holds libraries of vast knowledge and a weapon with the power to destroy mankind."
