Atlantis: The Lost Empire Directors Have Sad News About Those Live-Action Remake Rumors
Disney have found huge success in remaking their animated classics into live action, with the likes of The Lion King and Beauty and the Beast raking in billions at the box office. Fans are perpetually wondering which animated movie will be next in line, with recent rumors continuing to swirl that it will be 2001's Atlantis: The Lost Empire. Well, unfortunately for those wishing to see The Lost Empire realized in real-life, co-directors Kirk Wise and Gary Trousdale are now putting these rumors to bed.

"I've heard, so far, the only rumor of Atlantis being tackled as a live-action movie has been strictly on the internet," Kirk Wise said of the ongoing speculation. "I haven't gotten any independent corroboration of that."

Scrapped Atlantis 2: The Lost Empire Plans Revealed by Disney Director Kirk Wise

Scrapped Atlantis 2: The Lost Empire Plans Revealed by Disney Director Kirk Wise
Since it's fairly muted release back in 2001, Disney's underwater adventure Atlantis: The Lost Empire has become a cherished animation favorite for many. Well, the movie's director, Kirk Wise, has revealed his ideas for a once planned sequel.

"Believe it or not we did. [Story supervisor] John Sanford, Gary and I actually concocted an idea for a sequel to Atlantis. It had no relation to the Atlantis TV series that was being developed at Disney Television Animation. This was a feature-length, full-on, full-blown sequel to Atlantis."

Clearly the creative team behind Atlantis: The Lost Empire had big plans for a follow-up and were planning to fill it with all sorts of twists and turns. "We were going to have a new villain in the story. The villain was going to be wearing big, scary, wool, bulky, World War I-style clothing with a frightening gasmask to obscure its face; a little Darth Vader-esque," Kirk Wise continued.

Tom Holland Wanted for Disney's Atlantis Live-Action Remake?

Tom Holland Wanted for Disney's Atlantis Live-Action Remake?
With his role as Peter Parker / Spider-Man in not only director Jon Watts' Spider-Man: Homecoming and Spider-Man: Far From Home but The Russo Brothers' Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame, Tom Holland is quickly becoming one of Hollywood's most sought-after leading men.

And today we have word that the Captain America: Civil War and In the Heart of the Sea actor is being eyed for the lead role in Disney's planned upcoming live-action remake of their semi-hit animated film Atlantis: The Lost Empire.

Evidently, Disney intends to "stick fairly close to the animated film," and it seems that Holland is being eyed to play the role of geeky Smithsonian cartographer Milo Thatch, initially voiced by Michael J. Fox in the 2001 animated version.

While it might seem like a live-action remake of Atlantis: The Lost Empire is a strange plan for Disney, it could actually be one of their best ideas yet.
