AMC channel has acquired the rights to the series "Nautilus", based on the novel "20,000 Leagues Under the Sea" by Jules Verne. Initially, the project was to be released on Disney+, but in August the streaming service abandoned the project, despite the fact that by that time the shooting of "Nautilus" had already been completed.
The plot of the series starring Shazad Latif will center on the adventures of Captain Nemo and his submarine, the Nautilus. Nemo is described as an Indian prince who lost his throne after a rebellion against Britain. Nemo now seeks revenge against the British who took everything from him.
The script for all ten episodes of the project was written by James Dormer ("Strike Back"). The show will premiere in 2024, but the exact date is not yet reported.
Along with "Nautilus", Disney turned down another series — "The Spiderwick Chronicles" with Christian Slater and Joy Bryant. It was recently reported that this show was also saved: the project will be released on Roku.
