Canberra, Australia — Australia is paying its biggest Hollywood inducement ever to bring "20,000 Leagues Under the Sea" Down Under.
The Walt Disney Studios will film a new version of the science fiction classic in Australia, which will pay the studio 21.6 million Australia dollars ($22.6 million) to film there, the government said Tuesday.
"No casting decisions have been made," she said, so the filming schedule and locations haven't been set.
The newpaper reported that Fincher wanted Pitt for the film's hero Ned Land.
