With 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea picked as the next movie project for McG, Latino Review reports that the Terminator Salvation director already knows who he wants to cast as Captain Nemo: Will Smith.
"Man I'm trying to get Will Smith to do it, been trying to get a hold of him. I've been wanting to work with him for a long time already. That guy's great," said McG, "The character Nemo in this film is more about obsession, he is obsessed and people tend to forget that when you become so obsessed you end up being the villain."
It would be a nice change of pace for Smith to play a villain instead of being considered one for making Seven Pounds. Posted 01.15.09 by Ryan
