Ahab Vs Nemo In Great Eastern Film

Author Howard A. Rodman’s new novel “The Great Eastern” is reportedly being developed into a feature film by Great Point Media.

The story sees two of literature’s iconic anti-heroes, Captain Nemo from “20,000 Leagues Under the Sea” and Captain Ahab from “Moby Dick,” in conflict throughout the late 19th century.

After Nemo kidnaps real-life civil engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel to build a submarine – one which would link the U.S. and England who were opposing colonial forces at the time – the three men find themselves at battle with each other.

Rodman will adapt his own work for the screenplay.
