Looking forward to Disney’s next live-action remake–Hercules? Well, as of yet, the film is quite a bit away from premiering in theaters or streaming. However, the Russo Brothers recently spoke about the upcoming film in an interview and from this new tease of the remake we are all ready to go the distance to see this movie!
In a recent interview with Lights Camera Barstool, the brother’s stated the film “is still in development” and the script is about to come in a week.”We’ve taken a lot of time and care with it,” said Joe.
It’s a movie that was really important to me and my kids, something that they watched when they were young, and so we’ve got a strong emotional connection to it. Our intention is to look at everything we do and think about how can we build it out, what can you do with this that expands it, gives you different opportunities for storytelling in it. So we’re going through that same exercise with Hercules, is can we build it out, can we build a world out of this and that extends beyond it and would be compelling, and I think that’s what audiences are craving, right? They want to see something really cool that they wanna get lost in it for a decade, so that’s our mission is to provide them with that experience. It’s still early!”
Given the fact that the film is in such early stages of production, it is hard to say when exactly the movie will premiere to fans.
The movie was first confirmed in May of last year. At the time, the cast of the film was not revealed. The movie is set to be directed and produced by Joe and Anthony Russo while while Dave Callaham, writer of the upcoming Marvel flick Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, will write the script.
