UPDATE on Disney’s Live-Action Remake of ‘Hercules’

Disney has released live-action remakes of some of the most classic movies over the past few years, starting with films like Beauty and the Beast, Mulan, and Aladdin — and, they’re not done yet!


Now, we have Pinocchio, Snow White, and Hercules to look forward to! And, speaking of Hercules, we have some new information to share about the film!

According to the Hollywood Reporter, Guy Ritchie has joined the live-action remake of Hercules as the director. He joins the Russo brothers, Joe and Anthony Russo, on this project. And, if his name sounds familiar, it’s probably because he previously directed the live-action remake of Aladdin!

Aside from being a remake of the beloved Disney movie, the Russo brothers have suggested that the film could unlock something new for Disney — the Disney Cinematic Universe.
