Disney's Latest Live-Action Remake is 'Hercules'
The 1997 animated film is getting a Disney live-action remake.
Yesterday, The DisInsider reported that Disney would be developing a live-action Hercules.
The film is expected to keep its musical roots although it is unclear if Alan Menken will be returning at this time. The Russo Brothers (Avengers: Endgame) are set to produce.
Dave Callaham, writer of upcoming projects such as Wonder Woman 1984, Marvel's Shang-Chi, and Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse 2 has been tapped to pen the script.
The film will be produced under The Russo Brothers' AGBO banner. The Russo Brothers will not direct the film but according to the original report from The DisInsider, there are some rumors of who may be in the running to direct live-action Hercules.
The original 1997 musical fantasy was directed by Ron Clements and John Musker, the filmmakers behind The Little Mermaid and Aladdin. The original film had 18 writers credited for the story and the screenplay.
