Terminator Salvation helmer McG will direct 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea: Captain Nemo, a family film that is being fast tracked by Walt Disney Pictures.

Variety says that Sean Bailey (Tron) is producing with McG's Wonderland Sound and Vision.

Written by Bill Marsilli, the film is an origin story of Nemo as he creates his warship, the Nautilus. The characters come from the Jules Verne novel.

The 1954 original 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea was the first live-action film made by Walt Disney, became the second-highest grossing film that year and won three Oscars.

Though "20,000 Leagues Under the Sea" is expected to be McG's next film, he is in discussions to supervise development and direct the next installment of "Terminator."
