Those hoping for another Brad Pitt/David Fincher collaboration in the near future have reason to keep their fingers crossed.  Fincher has been developing a big-budget remake of 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea at Disney for quite some time, and last month we reported that the Mouse House was set to take a close look at the project for greenlight consideration while Fincher was courting Pitt for a lead role.  Now Pitt himself has spoken up about the prospect, and he sounds enthusiastic about teaming up with his Fight Club director for a fourth time.  Hit the jump to see what he had to say.

“I’d love to I mean, he’s my man.  He’s got a great take on it.  That’s just gonna be about schedule and time allocation, but he’s my man.”

It’s no secret that Pitt and Fincher are close friends, and I’m fascinated by the prospect of Fincher taking on a large-scale adventure project.  The director previously stated that the film would be shot in 3D and would probably 70% comprised of CG, and the role that Fincher has earmarked for Pitt is apparently that of Ned Land who was played by Kirk Douglas in the 1954 adaptation.  Seven scribe Andrew Kevin Walker penned the most recent draft of the script, so should scheduling work out with Pitt this would make for a fun reunion of sorts from the team behind the serial killer classic.

Pitt is finishing up reshoots on World War Z at the moment but currently isn’t firmly attached to anything for his next project.  I imagine the scheduling also depends on what Angelina Jolie has coming up, but I sincerely hope things come together for this one.

Check out the video interview with MTV below, which is a great watch.
