20,000 Leagues Under the Sea

20,000 Leagues Under the Sea: Last fall, Bryan Singer announced that 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea would be his next film and now we know who will be backing it. 20th Century Fox is officially on board, aiming to begin production early in the fall; Singer will begin casting right away. Rick Sordelet and Dan Studney wrote the screenplay, based on the novel by Jules Verne. Singer says the movie will feature "not only the original characters of Captain Nemo, Ned Land and Professor Aronnax, but also some new and original characters and [sci-fi] plot twists." [Deadline]


The Three Stooges

The Three Little Stooges: Casting is underway on The Three Little Stooges, a new take on the classic comedy trio. Producers are searching for children to portray 12-year-old versions of Larry, Moe and Curly. Harris Goldberg (Deuce Bigalow: Male Gigolo) has written the screenplay and will direct. The hope is to start a new franchise, not directly related to the 2012 version (above). [Deadline]
