Sony/Columbia is ready to head 20,000 leagues under the sea with a new Captain Nemo spec script purchase from screenwriters Alfred Gough and Miles Millar.  The Smallville and  Spider-Man 2 writers have reportedly put forward a new take on Jules Verne’s classic antihero, the genius scientist who patrols the ocean’s depths in his formidable submarine, The Nautilus.  Few other details are available on their version at the moment, suffice to say that the duo will executive produce with  Joe Roth and Palak Patel also on board as producers.  Perhaps Sony will have better luck getting their version of “20,000 Leagues under the Sea” off the ground (or under the water?) than Disney; that studio has struggled to keep a director attached to the project McG departing over four years ago, and David Fincher abandoning ship more recently due to budget issues.
