A live-action Hercules is coming!
The classic 1997 Disney musical film will be getting a live-action reboot, THR reported on Thursday (April 30).
The project will be produced by Avengers directors, Joe and Anthony Russo, and written by Dave Callaham, who launched The Expendables and Marvel‘s upcoming Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings.
“The new Hercules is in early development and this being a Disney title, rumors have already swirled about other producers and even filmmakers. The Russos are the only producers on the project and will not direct, according to insiders,” the report reads.
While casting rumors have swirled in recent weeks, in part due to Ariana Grande performing “I Won’t Say I’m in Love” during the recent Disney Family Singalong, “the project is far from the casting stage,” and it is “unclear what the take on Hercules will be or if it will even keep the musical elements.”
Writer Dave Callaham is currently working on Shang-Chi, as well as Wonder Woman 1984 and Spider-Man 3. We can’t wait to see what they come up with!
