Looks like Disney's 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea is back on track and the director is…David Fincher?

The director, who was behind films like Se7en and Fight Club was chosen to take on the classic Jules Verne story after Disney's new production head Sean Bailey came on board.

Fincher has said that he wanted "to tackle a four-quadrant tentpole movie" for the first time in his career.

The project was initially going to be directed by McG, but the $150 million budget and "dark tone" of the project was a concern for the studio and it was scrapped.

Sources are saying that the adaptation is "described as being in the vein of Star Wars or The Empire Strikes Back. It will aim to be visually dazzling."

Thoughts?
