After the panned 2003 movie based on Alan Moore's The League Of Extraordinary Gentlemen, fans of the time-hopping comic book series could well have given up hope on seeing the likes of Captain Nemo portrayed in live action again. Fox is attempting to revive interest in the property, however, and has given a put pilot commitment to a new TV adaptation.

Green Lantern and Heroes writer Michael Green is on board to pen the script and executive produce, according to The Hollywood Reporter, and will be showrunner if Fox decides to pick up the series. It's said that neither Alan Moore nor illustrator Kevin O'Neill will be producers on the project; Moore's antipathy towards adaptations of his own work is well documented.
