McG has denied online reports of Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson being cast in the upcoming family sci-fi feature “20,000 Leagues Under the Sea: Captain Nemo”.
The “Terminator Salvation” director, who is also helming ‘Nemo’, tells Sci-Fi Wire that “I’ve never spoken to Dwayne Johnson about this. I like him. He’s great. He’s a wonderful human being and an excellent screen presence, but we have not spoken about 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea. Not a word.”
Shooting on ‘Nemo’ gets underway later this year in Queensland, Australia.
