Bryan Singer To Direct 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea

In keeping with his tradition of handling his own PR through social media, Bryan Singer has announced his next film via his Instagram account. According to the director, he’s planning an adaptation of Jules Verne’s 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea.

It’s certainly an ambitious project, and one that has defeated the likes of McG and, most famously in recent years, David Fincher. The latter got as far as trying to land Brad Pitt for the lead and locking down Australian studio space and locations for his take on the adventure tale with a script by Andrew Kevin Walker.

Now Singer – no stranger to big films following the likes of X-Men: Days Of Future Past and its incoming follow-up X-Men: Apocalypse – has a screenplay written by Rick Sordelet and Jack The Giant Slayer’s Dan Studney based on a story by the director and his writers. And, of course, drawing from Verne’s novel, which features the temperamental Captain Nemo and his giant sub the Nautilus, which has been brought to the screen several times before.

Fincher and his team were working for Disney, but Singer’s post, which promises “an epic and emotional adventure for all ages” doesn’t mention a studio. Given the public domain nature of the tome, any studio should be able to adapt it, and with his close X-Men ties there, it’s possible this will be for Fox, which has tried its own version, without success, in years past. And mutant fans shouldn’t worry – Singer also mentions he has no plans to abandon the X-universe just yet. Talking of, Apocalypse will be with us on May 19 next year.

Morbius: The Living Vampire Film In The Works

The Spider spin-offs keep on coming! With Venom now shooting, an even more obscure character from the web-slinger's extensive comicbook past has now been unearthed, with plans for a movie. Power Rangers writing duo Matt Sazama and Burk Sharpless are in talks to craft the script for Morbius: The Living Vampire.

Sony is pushing ahead with another potential Spider-movie, which, like Venom, is unlikely to be linked to the MCU. What it will boast, however, is the story of Michael Morbius, a Nobel Prize-winning biochemist who tries to cure a rare blood disease using an experimental treatment that combines electroshock therapy and vampire bats. The results are predictably catastrophic, and he's transformed into... well, the title should be a clue. He has some of the traditional vampiric qualities – he ingests blood to live, and conversely is not fond of bright light. He can fly, has superhuman strength and healing capabilities. When he bites victims and drinks their blood, his attac…

Enter For A Chance To Win Passes To See DARKEST HOUR on December 5th at 7:00 PM in Dallas

During the early days of World War II, with the fall of France imminent, Britain faces its darkest hour as the threat of invasion looms. As the seemingly unstoppable Nazi forces advance, and with the Allied army cornered on the beaches of Dunkirk, the fate of Western Europe hangs on the leadership of the newly-appointed British Prime Minister Winston Churchill (Academy Award nominee Gary Oldman). While maneuvering around his political rivals, he must confront the ultimate choice: negotiate with Hitler and save the British people at a terrible cost or rally the nation and fight on against incredible odds. Directed by Joe Wright, DARKEST HOUR is the dramatic and inspiring story of four weeks in 1940 during which Churchill’s courage to lead changed the course of world history.
