Hayley Atwell is said to be teaming up with a new captain after joining the cast of The Return Of Captain Nemo.
The Captain America star will play the heroine Sara alongside Downton Abbey's Hugh Bonneville as Captain Nemo, Deadline reports.
Nowhere Boy's David Morrissey has also joined the cast as her uncle, the chief adviser to President Ulysses S Grant, who frees Captain Nemo from prison in his bid to find out why mysterious "sea monsters" are sinking ships all over the Atlantic Coast.
Singaporean director Pearry Teo will direct the 3D film, shot entirely on green screen using CGI.
The semi-sequel to Jules Verne's Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea is due to begin filming in January.
