Am I the only one excited for David Fincher’s 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea? Mostly because it’s a combination of the director of Seven with Jules Verne and Disney? Really? Well, whether you’re excited or not, 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea is inching ever closer to production, for Australia has offered itself as a potential site for production once Disney greenlights the picture.

Australia has reportedly offered Disney a flat $22.5m to shoot the Jules Verne underwater epic. Quite a big incentive for Disney producers to get in gear and actually give the project the green light.  In fact, it’s the biggest incentive Australia has ever offered to a film production. They really want this one.

And so do I. With Fincher working on a really stellar cast list – Channing Tatum has been mentioned in the role of seafaring hero Ned Land – the project sounds like a gimme. »
