Disney Live-Action 'Mulan' Adaptation Looking to Niki Caro to Direct

HaydnSpurrell HaydnSpurrell Niki Caro is in talks to take the helm on Disney's live-action adaptation of Mulan, Variety confirms. The script is being written by Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver (Jurassic World, Avatar), based off the blue print that was a spec by Lauren Hynek and Elizabeth Martin.

The film has a November 2, 2018 release date, getting fast-tracked at the studio and coming off the back of recent live-action successes with Maleficent and Cinderella. Beauty and the Beast is almost certain to be a hit, having quickly become one of the most anticipated films of this year and releases on March 17.

Caro is best known for directing Whale Rider, the critically acclaimed pic that earned Keisha Castle-Hughes an Oscar nom. She was on the Marvel radar for Captain Marvel recently, before it seems the two parties' visions for Mulan aligned.
