SE7EN Scribe Andrew Kevin Walker Boards David Fincher’s 20,000 LEAGUES UNDER THE SEA

With the release of The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo now merely a month away, all eyes on what project David Fincher will choose next. His Curious Case of Benjamin Button scribe Eric Roth is currently in talks to rewrite the epic Cleopatra, a project that Fincher is circling, but now another Fincher alumnus is boarding one of his next possible projects. Deadline reports that Se7en scribe Andrew Kevin Walker is set to work on the script for Fincher’s remake of 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea. The previous draft was written by Scott Z. Burns (The Bourne Ultimatum), but it appears that Fincher’s looking to tweak the project a bit more.

The director has previously mentioned that his version of the Jules Verne adventure classic will be in 3D, and will probably be 70% CG. Disney is producing Leagues, but I’m wondering how dark Fincher plans to skew the material, especially given the addition of Walker. The director has still yet to choose his Dragon Tattoo follow-up, but if he takes a liking to Walker’s rewrite then Leagues is a serious contender. Personally, the thought of Fincher and Walker taking on a high seas adventure sounds absolutely fantastic.
