McG Goes 20,000 Leagues Deep

It seems director McG, who helmed this summer's blockbuster Terminator Salvation, has become a hot commodity. He's now set up to direct -- not a remake -- the origin story of 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea. The film is titled: 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea: Captain Nemo, and Disney is putting up the cash. In it we will see how Captain Nemo goes about constructing his famous vessel, the Nautilus.

At this point, all of my excitement for future McG projects is contigent on how good or bad Terminator Salvation turns out to be. As far as I can tell from the trailers it will at least be competent, but let's face it. At this point the Terminator franchise needs a lot more than competence to resurrect it from its deathbed.

Any fans of the original 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea out there? What are your thoughts on this? Is McG the right man for the job, or would you rather see a director with more underwater experience? Like, say...oh, I don't know...James Cameron? Now that would be epic. Unfortunately, he's tied up until the end of the century with Avatar.
