While he says itâ€™s doubtful itâ€™ll be for another â€œTerminatorâ€ movie, Aussie actor Sam Worthington is dead-keen to work with â€œSalvationâ€ director McG again. And might that â€˜something elseâ€™ be â€˜â€™Captain Nemo : 20,000 Leagues Under the Seaâ€™â€™, which McG recently said heâ€™d love Worthington to headline?
â€œI actually saw that online [that McG said he wanted me]â€, Worthington tells Moviehole. â€œAm I like â€˜hey [McG], how come youâ€™ve never talked to me about this?â€
Worthington admits he did tell McG it would be a cool role to play, despite knowing too well that Will Smith was the directorâ€™s first choice for Nemo at the time.
â€œThe next thing you know itâ€™s online – heâ€™s saying â€˜I want Sam I want Samâ€™ I started laughing. I might get into it a bit more and start writing online saying I want this job and this job and this job. We havenâ€™t discussed it seriously. I wrote him an email and he wrote back saying â€˜I donâ€™t think you have these qualities, blah, blah..â€™ and I wrote back saying â€˜itâ€™s your job as a director to bring it out of me.â€™â€
Despite being McGâ€™s first choice for the role of Nemo, Smith has reportedly turned down the offer, leaving the role wide-open for someone like Worthington to grab.
Disneyâ€™s â€œNemoâ€ is based on a classic science fiction novel by French writer Jules Verne published in 1870. It tells the story of Captain Nemo and his submarine Nautilus as seen from the perspective of Professor Pierre Aronnax.
