Late last year, we told you that director David Fincher ("The Social Network") was planning to adapt "20,000 Leagues Under the Sea" for Disney and 3D audiences.
Now, Slash Film has a very interesting interview with Fincher, who says that the movie will be 70 percent CGI.
"I would love to to something like that," Fincher said. "I would love to do something probably more like 'Avatar' than 'Tintin.' I like the idea of something that is a little more… complicated. (chuckles) I love the idea of a 'cartoon', but I would like it to be sort of very, very dense. And, in fact, 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea will be probably 70% CG. [...] I love motion capture and think it's only in its infancy, and eventually there won't be a difference between motion capture and acting. because that's all motion capture is, is being able to capture acting."
Hmmm… not sure what I think of that. One commenter named Bigzilla went on to say, "Bigzilla says his anticipation for '20,000 Leagues Under the Sea' was just reduced by 70%." Do you agree or are you still excited for this underwater adventure? Fincher certainly hasn't disappointed me yet.
There's no word on when "20,000 Leagues Under the Sea" will be released. Fincher is too busy getting ready to release his next film, which is also based on a bestseller. "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo" will hit 2D theaters on December 21, 2011.
