20,000 Leagues Before A Remake...
Fifty-six years ago today Walt Disney's take on Jules Verne...
"20,000 Leagues Under the Sea" came out in 1954 and was a huge hit for Disney. It showed his daring in willing to gamble on projects that could be financially ruining for his beloved Walt Disney Production. If this had failed, his other big project may have had to be shelved or possibly sold off in bits and pieces. That project was scheduled to open up the following year. What was it? Disneyland.
Now there are plans at work to remake the adaptation of the classic Verne novel with David Fincher at the helm. It'll be interesting to see Fincher's take on the story and what different direction Scott Z. Burns' script will take the film in.
