New Line yearns for Verne

New Line will descend to “20,000 Leagues Under the Sea,” snapping up Craig Titley’s pitch for an updated version of Jules Verne’s novel. New Line is developing the project as a film that would look more closely into the background of Captain Nemo as well as that of his prisoners aboard the Nautilus. Disney’s original “20,000 Leagues Under the Sea,” released in 1954, starred James Mason, Kirk Douglas and Peter Lorre in the story of a 19th century expedition to find a mysterious sea creature that’s been attacking ships.
