It seems that not only Hollywood is eager to rethink the classic story of Captain Nemo invented by Jules Verne - the Celestial Empire is also planning this. According to the portal Deadline , the Chinese company Bliss Media has announced its desire to film its own adaptation of 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea .|
According to the source, the studio already has an agreement to secure the release of the upcoming film in cinemas in China. The filming of the adventure film was entrusted to the director Christoph Hans , famous for the horror movie Silent Hill and the fantasy melodrama Beauty and the Beast.
For the new version of the story about Captain Nemo , the producers intend to find two Chinese actors for the main roles. In addition, even the action of the film will unfold in the Middle Kingdom, and Hans is already looking for locations for filming in the Shanghai area.
Among the competitors of the project there will be two pictures at once. One of them, also a film adaptation of 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea , is being prepared for 20th Century Fox by Brian Singer. He, like Hans, intends to start filming this fall. In turn, Disney is planning a film about Captain Nemo , but this version will be a looser interpretation of Jules Verne .
