Earlier news spread on the web by Production Weekley that Disney casts Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson for “20,000 LEAGUES UNDER THE SEA: CAPTAIN NEMO”, to bad the rumor was dismissed soon after.
Prior to this, there were talks about Will Smith going to be in the movie which it was another baseless news.
Production Weekly released this statement on Twitter:
Correction: Dwayne Johnson not involved in Disney’s “20,000 Leagues Under The Sea: Captain Nemo”
One thing for sure McG is going to be on board as director and Justin Marks and Bill Marsilii will be writing the screenplay.
