McG saved Terminator Salvation when he hauled in Jonathan Nolan to revamp the script. Now it seems he may exercise the same good judgement with his Captain Nemo movie's tawdry montage-and-angst-laden draft.
The Captain Nemo origins movie, which McG has been very vocal about attaching Will Smith to, is up and rolling. Last week, we asked McG what the status of the script was. And although McG seemed very happy with that draft, now it turns out the He-Man and the Masters of the Universe writer has been assigned to tweak the details.
According to Variety, Marks is on board to rewrite the "fast tracked" script, and we applaud this decision. Please just cut out the many, many, many montage scenes from the current draft. [Variety]
