According to Production Weekly, Dwayne Johnson is being cast in the role of Capt Nemo in Walt Disney Pictures' 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea: Captain Nemo prequel. Even when he performed only as his alter ego (the eyebrow raising cocky Rock in WWE wrestling, the man showed unusual and appealing acting talent.
Although we cannot be certain that he has indeed landed the role yet, it would make sense that he has. Afterall, the actor does have an impressive list of movies in his background now ..including two successful Disney films, The Game Plan and (most recently) Race To Witch Mountain. He is indeed earning his credentials as a Disney Cast Member. Can you smell-lel-lel-lel-lel what the CM is cooking?!!!
Will Smith has also been considered for the role. However, I beleave that Johnson would fit the role much better. Besides, I've heard that the shooting of another Men In Black film may start up in the near future. this of course would create a scheduling conflict for Smith. Darn!
