20,000 Leagues to return to the big screen?

While searching for Disney news, I ran across a Jan. 7 story from Entertainment Tonight that caught my eye. It's pretty short, so I'll just give you the entire article:

"ET confirms that Jules Verne's infamous Captain Nemo will make a return to the big screen in an update of '20,000 Leagues Under the Sea,' to be helmed by 'Terminator Salvation' director McG.

The Disney family film '20,000 Leagues Under the Sea: Captain Nemo' will chronicle the origins of Nemo as he builds his Nautilus submarine, with characters based on the 1870 Jules Verne novel.

Although '20,000 Leagues' has been put on film as far back as 1916 and as recently as 1997 on TV, James Mason most famously portrayed Captain Nemo in Walt Disney's first live-action film in 1954. Kirk Douglas and Peter Lorre also starred in the Oscar-winning film, perhaps best remembered for its exciting battle with a giant squid.

No cast has been announced for the project. "


With a return of 20K to the theaters, might we see a return of something related to 20K in the parks?
