Hayley Atwell Boards Captain Nemo Film

Movie News

“Captain America: The First Avenger” star Hayley Atwell has come aboard Pearry Teo’s “The Return of Captain Nemo”, a soon-t0-be 3D sequel to “20,000 Leagues Under The Sea” that hopes to start shooting January 16.

Atwell will play heroine Sara, while David Morrissey, star of Brit TV’s “Red Riding” is attached to play her uncle, the chief adviser to President Ulysses S Grant, who frees Nemo from prison to try and discover why mysterious “sea monsters” are sinking ships up and down the Atlantic Coast. Hugh Bonneville, star of PBS/ITV period drama “Downton Abbey” (and 1999’s “Notting Hill”), has already been announced as Captain Nemo.

Deadline reports that like “300”, “The Return Of Captain Nemo” will be shot entirely onstage using green screen and CGI. “We would have to double our production costs if we shot this in the States,” producer Amy Krell says.

The film is budgeted at $10 million and will shoot in Romania.
