Avengers: Endgame directors Joe Russo and Anthony Russo were rumoured to direct with Disney on a live-action remake of Hercules. The original animated movie based on the Roman hero and god was made by Disney in 1997.
Dave Callaham, the master behind Expendables franchise has been hired to script the film. He has also written Marvel’s upcoming Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings.
Avengers: Endgame directors Joe Russo and Anthony Russo will not be directing the film but will produce it. Their banner AGBO will be cashing in for the film.
The animated film revolves around the story of Greek legend and it was a musical. Voice behind Hercules was of Tate Donovan and Hades was voiced by James Woods.
It’s been said that over the years, 18 writers have worked in the script of Hercules to bring it back on screen in a live-action format. There have been no final call about the casting of the film and it’s also not clear if the makers will retain the musical aspect from the original or it’ll be more in the action-heavy zone. It would be interesting to see how the Avengers: Endgame directors work on this exciting project after giving us such an amazing film last year.
