Hercules is the latest nostalgic movie to join Disney’s pageantry of live-action remakes.
The studio is reportedly developing an all-new adaptation of the 1997 classic, according to The Hollywood Reporter. The movie will be (re)written by Dave Callaham, who is currently partnered with Disney on Shang-Chi and Legend of the Ten Rings.
The original Hercules movie told the story of a young god in training, who goes head-to-head against Hades (aka the god of the underworld). Although Disney hasn’t revealed any casting details, we wouldn’t be surprised if Ariana Grande goes the distance to ensure her involvement. (Sorry, had to.)
