Bryan Singer has unveiled his next film project following the finishing touches on “X-Men: Apocalypse”  — an adaptation of the classic Jules Verne novel “20,000 Leagues Under the Sea.”

The project does not seem to have a studio home yet. A representative for Singer did not return TheWrap’s request for comment.

“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,” the director wrote on Instagram.

“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,” he added.
