The producers took stock of the project!
Following the wave of live-action remakes, Disney is developing an adaptation for Hercules, the 1997 classic, which features the Russian brothers (Avengers: Infinity War and Ultimatum) as producers. Previously, Anthony Russo had already made it clear that they did not intend to create an identical version to the original, and now Joe Russo has provided an update on the development of the project.
In an interview with Lights Camera Barstool, Russo was asked about the progress of the live action. In his response, the director suggests that Disney plans to create a universe that will be explored for many years to come, and not just something isolated:
“It’s still in development, the script should arrive in a week,” he said. “We take a lot of time and take great care of him. They [da Disney] they want to see something that’s really cool, something that they want to get lost in for a decade, so our mission is to provide that experience.
So, will we have an epic, mythological franchise coming to Disney?
