It looks like David Fincher's 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea is coming up for air yet again. Disney's Jules Verne adaptation has officially been delayed, with the studio halting production until next year.
According to the Sydney Morning Herald (via The Film Stage and /Film), this latest snag stems from casting issues. For some time, Fincher had been courting Brad Pitt to star as the film's master harpooner Ned Land, but the actor ultimately turned down the role. Channing Tatum was in talks to replace him, but apparently that didn't work out either.

Note: Full spoilers for Supernatural: Season 8 follow.
While the previous season of Supernatural was a disappointment, they at least had the good grace a year ago to leave things in an interesting spot, which gave Season 8 a good chance of starting things off well. And the show did not drop the ball. What we got was a solid season-long mythology storyline, some great supporting characters, and of course, a lot of the always reliable backbone of the show – Sam and Dean Winchester.
Beginning a year after the events of the previous season, things kicked off with Dean’s return from Purgatory. While Dean was gone, Sam had given up hunting, fallen in love and was living a normal life. During the first half of the season the separation between the brothers in terms of what they wanted out of life was reminiscent of the first year of the show, with Dean fully committed to the hunting lifestyle and Sam yearning for what he had with Amelia.
