Hey guys, Jana here,
Bryan Singer celebrated his birthday by announcing his next project that is very dear to him, ‘20,000 Leagues Under the Sea‘. The filmmaker wrote the script which is a version of Jules Verne’s famous story that has been re-told time and time again.
The novel, penned in 1870, has withstood the test of time incredibly well. It’s full of scientific theories that are still relevant today and Verne’s knowledge of submarines, which were at the time incredibly primitive, are all points that keep new generations interested year after year.
Singer posted a picture of the script with the caption “It’s my 50th birthday (ouch), and I just put the finishing touches on the script for my next film. A story I’ve wanted to retell since childhood,”
“I promise this will be an epic and emotional adventure for all ages! An adventure very dear to my heart. Not abandoning the #xmen universe. Very excited about #xmenapocalypse and beyond. #julesverne #20000leaguesunderthesea #nemo,” he added.
This will, of course be after a studio has signed on for the property and after ‘X-Men: Apocalypse‘ has wrapped it’s production. The latest in the X-Men franchise is slated to hit big screens in May of 2016.
