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.

Movie Review: #MissSloane

The political drama Miss Sloane fails to lobby us into Oscar territory.
Review by Matt Cummings
In a time when women were supposed to be leading our country, Miss Sloane arrives to remind us of what could have been. Unfortunately, this message about a headstrong female Washington lobbyist loses us early with an unappealing director, a paper-thin plot, and suffers from a ton of convenient realism. If the good (but not impressive) performances weren't there to buffer these and many other gaps, we might have found ourselves voting for impeachment.

For Washington lobbyist Elizabeth Sloane (Jessica Chastain), life is about getting her clients what they want from the halls of Congress. Her boss Dupont (Sam Waterston) will sleep with NRA types, fudge travel records, and bully smaller firms into submission if it means a hearty paycheck at day's end. But when Sloane leaves the company to push Gun Control legislation with one of those smaller firms, Dupont turns to his bulldog Co…
