We've been hearing about David Fincher tackling '20,000 Leagues Under the Sea' for a couple of years now, and it it's already gone through a number of writers, including Andrew Kevin Walker, Scott Z. Burns, and is currently being worked on by Steve Zaillian.

Titles mean a lot, and it's easy to understand why Andrew Dominik's genre thriller 'Cogan's Trade' had its name changed to 'Killing Them Softly.' With violence implied from the title, it now sounds more like genre fare than a misspelled sequel to an old Clint Eastwood film.
