Following X-Men: Apocalypse, Bryan Singer will be tackling the Jules Verne classic 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea.

Singer posted a pic of the script on Instagram which also sees mention he is sticking with the X-Men universe.

It's my 50th birthday (ouch), and I just put the finishing touches on the script for my next film. A story I've wanted to retell since childhood. I promise this will be an epic and emotional adventure for all ages! An adventure very dear to my heart. Not abandoning the #xmen universe. Very excited about #xmenapocalypse and beyond. #julesverne #20000leaguesunderthesea #nemo
