As reported dead line exclusively, we already have official confirmation. The filmmaker will take care of the live action remake of Hercules. Another of the animation classics will see the light with people of flesh and blood.
The live-action remake of Hercules will be produced by AGBO. It is the production company led by Joe and Anthony Russothe directors of Avengers: Infinity War Y Avengers: Endgame. The Disney studio is in the process of hiring a set of writers after Dave Callaham have written a first draft. As we say, this is officially confirmed by Deadline.
At the moment, no further details about the film are known.
Guy Ritchie recently shot an action thriller that is still untitled. This film will star the actor Jake Gyllenhaal. It also comes from doing Operation Fortune: The Great Hoax (2022), which he wrote, directed, and executive produced. This film was led by the great Jason Statham. Waiting to know more details about Herculesthe Disney remake starts with the advantage that it is one of the most beloved and demanded classics of the entire animation franchise.
The most interesting thing will be knowing who the chosen actor is. Surely they opt for a young interpreter, to give him the opportunity and to open a gap in the Hollywood industry. However, they could surprise us and catch someone already consolidated, like Tom Holland (for example). The other curiosity is whether the new Disney remake starring Hercules and directed by Guy Ritchie makes use of animated characters like the horse Pegasus or the satyr Philoctetes.
