Disney's The Hunchback of Notre Dame is getting a live action remake

It feels like just about every Disney classic has gotten the remake treatment lately.

From Beauty and the Beast to Cinderella; the Jungle Book to Christopher Robin, many of Disney's most beloved characters have gotten a big revamp on their return to the big screen

And the remakes are showing no signs of slowing down, with remakes of The Lion King; Aladdin; Dumbo; Lady and the Tramp; and Mulan all on the cards.

The latest animated classic to get the live-action treatment is none other than The Hunchback of Notre Dame. 

Deadline report that Frozen and Beauty and the Beast star Josh Gad is said to be eyeing up the main role - although no casting has been set yet.

He ha also already secured producing duties on the movie.

Tony Award winner David Henry Hwang will write the live-action tale of Quasimodo, Captain Phoebus and Esmerelda - and the film will pull from the 1996 animated classic, as well as Victor Hugo's 1831 novel.

 

Stephen Schwartz and Alan Menken will create the music for the film. Mencken has previously worked on a number of beloved Disney films, including Aladdin, Beauty and the Beast, The Little Mermaid as well as The Hunchback of Notre Dame.
