James Mangold To Take Point On Disney’s Captain Nemo

It is been reported that James Mangold will really be hitting the high seas further down the line with Disney’s long-gestating maritime adventure, Captain Nemo.

Pitched as an origins tale to H.G. Wells 20,000 Leagues under the Sea, the reboot is currently situated in pre-production where Sebastian Gutierrez is busy whipping a script into shape. As one of the studio’s first live-action feature films, Leagues holds a tremendous amount of historical value for the House of Mouse. Originally released in 1954, Captain Nemo was the core anti-hero of the swashbuckling epic, and Disney is now hoping to weave a feature film out of Jules Verne’s story – one centering on the captain as he creates the Nautilus warship.

It’s likely that Captain Nemo will be placed on Mangold’s back-burner as he begins to fire up production on The Wolverine 3. Tentatively pegged for a release in March of 2017, the Hugh Jackman-fronted actioner is primed to bring the curtain down on the actor’s defining stint as the enraged mutant.
