Bryan Singer Turns His Sights on His Dream Project

Celebrating a 50th birthday and with X-Men: Apocalypse in post-production, writer/ director Bryan Singer is working on a dream project of his.

That’s right, Singer is diving into Jules Verne‘s literary classic 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea. If you can’t make out the other names on the script they are Rick Sordelet and Dan Studney, the screenwriters that wrote Singer’s Jack the Giant Slayer, which was a pretty “meh” fantasy film. We can however forgive Singer for this, because he has been doing great things with the X-Men franchise since then.  They aren’t the first team to try to adapt the novel. Most famously Disney tried it in 1954 with a film starring Kirk Douglas.

Not many details yet on when it will be happening, but it will probably begin production after X-Men: Apocalypse comes out, May 27th of next year.
