Bryan Singer announces next movie on Instagram: It’s 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea

Bryan Singer, busy putting the finishing touches on X-Men: Apocalypse, already has his next project lined up.

The out filmmaker has taken to Instagram to announce he plans to make a film version of 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea.

‘It’s my 50th birthday and I just put the finishing touches on the script for my next film, a story I’ve wanted to retell since childhood,’ he writes. ‘I promise this will be an epic and emotional adventure for all ages. An adventure very dear to my heart…[I’m] not abandoning the X-Men universe…very excited by X-Men Apocalypse and beyond.’

Singer made a big name for himself 20 years ago with the neo-noir crime thriller The Usual Suspects and has since directed four films in the X-Men franchise including last year’s X-Men: Days of Future Past.

He has also directed the films Superman Returns, Jack the Giant Slayer and the WWII historical thriller Valkyrie starring Tom Cruise.
