Event Notes

× 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea By Anne Sonneville and Clint Sheffer From the novel by Jules Verne

We join the prolific naturalist Professor Aronnax, his devoted assistant Conseil and the gritty harpooner Ned Land for an epic journey aboard the Nautilus, the world's first submarine vessel. Forcefully led by the dangerous and enigmatic Captain Nemo on an unprecedented tour of the seven seas, our three heroes are confronted by harrowing challenges, incredible adventure, and a host of most unusual creatures. They must also wrestle with the dark forces that lurk in the depths of men's souls if they are ever to return home alive. In this daring new adaptation of Jules Verne's classic 19th-century saga, an emphasis on action strips this adventure down to its essence, bringing spectacle and ensemble to the fore. While this work is primarily an adaptation of a classic piece of literature, it also contains a hint of satire, which stems from our love of '80s and '90s genre films, action-comedies in particular. References to Predator, Die Hard, The Last Boy Scout, Hudson Hawk, The Whole Nine Yards, Jaws and Blade Runner are peppered throughout the script to help lend a contemporary flavor.
