Westlake Legal Group hercules-live-action-remake-in-the-works-at-disney-report ‘Hercules’ live-action remake in the works at Disney: report Variety fox-news/entertainment/movies fox-news/entertainment/genres/musicals fox-news/entertainment fnc/entertainment fnc e735b49d-572b-539b-93e2-a0973e4e7e1f Dave McNary article

Disney is in early development of a live-action remake of its 1997 animated movie “Hercules,” with “Avengers” filmmakers Joe and Anthony Russo producing through their AGBO production company.

Disney has hired action specialist Dave Callaham to write the “Hercules” script. Callaham teamed with Sylvester Stallone for the original screenplay for “The Expendables,” creating his character for the franchise. He has credits on “Godzilla” and “Zombieland: Double Tap,” as well as the upcoming “Wonder Woman 1984” and Disney-Marvel’s “Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings.”

The 1997 movie was a musical-fantasy retelling of the Hercules legend directed by Ron Clements and John Musker. Hercules was voiced by Tate Donovan, snatched as a baby by Hades and forced to live among mortals as a half-man, half-god. Hercules needed to perform a rite of passage on Earth to prove himself worthy of living with the gods on Mount Olympus, so with the help of his satyr mentor, voiced by Danny DeVito, he learns how to use his strength to defeat a series of evil creatures.

“Hercules” carried an $85 million budget and generated $252 million at the worldwide box office. That performance lagged behind predecessors such as 1991’s “Beauty and the Beast,” 1992’s “Aladdin” and 1994’s “The Lion King” — all of which would become lucrative live-action remakes for Disney.

The Russo brothers directed “Captain America: The Winter Soldier,” “Captain America: Civil War,” “Avengers: Infinity War” and “Avengers: Endgame.” “Endgame” is the highest-grossing film of all time with $2.79 billion in global ticket sales. They also won an Emmy Award for “Arrested Development” and worked on “Community,” “Happy Endings” and “Deadly Class.”

Westlake Legal Group GettyImages-1176500175 Billy Porter may join 'Cinderella' as the Fairy Godmother: report Variety fox-news/entertainment/movies fox-news/entertainment/genres/musicals fox-news/entertainment fnc/entertainment fnc Dave McNary article 0029437b-554a-5323-98fc-5a8e47a7054d

“Pose” star Billy Porter is in negotiations to join Camila Cabello in Sony’s reimagined musical version of “Cinderella.”

If the deal goes through, Porter will play Cinderella’s fairy godmother. Sony had no comment.

Cabello came on to the project in April with “Blockers” director Kay Cannon attached to helm and pen the script. Cabello will be involved in the music for the project, which grew out of an original idea from James Corden. The film will be produced by Corden and Leo Pearlman through their Fulwell73 banner.

‘MATRIX 4’: YAHYA ABDUL-MATEEN II LANDS LEAD ROLE

The new “Cinderella” will be a music-oriented version of the traditional tale of the orphaned girl with an evil stepmother. Disney’s 1950 animated drama has received two live-action remakes: 1997’s iteration starring Brandy and Whitney Houston and Kenneth Branagh’s 2015 version with Lily James. The latter grossed $543 million worldwide.

Porter won his first Emmy in the lead actor in a drama series last month for his performance as Pray Tell on Ryan Murphy’s “Pose.” His stage credits include “Angels in America” and his Tony Award-winning portrayal of Lola in “Kinky Boots.”

WAYNE BRADY TO RECUR ON ‘BLACK LIGHTNING SEASON 3

Porter will return for the third season of FX’s “Pose” and will also appear next year in Paramount’s comedy “Like a Boss” opposite Tiffany Haddish, Salma Hayek and Rose Byrne. He is repped by CAA and Industry Entertainment.

STXfilms has set its strip-club drama “Hustlers,” starring Jennifer Lopez, Constance Wu and Cardi B, for a Sept. 13 release in North America.

Lopez announced the date on her Instagram account on Monday.

Lili Reinhart, Keke Palmer, Julia Stiles and Mercedes Ruehl are also in the cast. The film is being directed by Lorene Scafaria.

The movie, originally set up at Annapurna as “The Hustlers at Scores,” is inspired by a New York Magazine article by Jessica Pressler. It’s set in New York City in the wake of the financial crisis and follows a crew of savvy former strip club employees who band together to turn the tables on their Wall Street clients.

STXfilms is producing alongside Lopez, Elaine Goldsmith-Thomas and Benny Medina — who previously collaborated with the studio on the 2018 romantic-comedy “Second Act” — as well as Adam McKay, Will Ferrell and Jessica Elbaum for Gloria Sanchez Productions. Kate Vorhoff and Catherine Hagedorn are overseeing the film’s production for the studio. STXinternational is handling international distribution, and distributing directly in the U.K. and Ireland.

The release date is a week after Warner Bros. launches “It: Chapter Two.” “Hustlers” is the third title dated for Sept. 13, joining Warner’s drama “The Goldfinch” and Fox’s animated “Spies in Disguise.”
