The Hollywood Reporter unveils that Disney is working on a live-action remake of the classic 1997 film Hercules. Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings writer, Dave Callaham, is set to pen the movies’ script.
The original film retold the famous Hercules tale, in semi-musical form. Hercules, the son of Zeus, is stripped of his immortality by Hades to conquer Mount Olympus in 18 years. His plans don’t go as successfully as he intended as Hercules is left with his superhuman strength. Afterward, the hero goes on a journey to protect his home and humanity.
The forthcoming film was supposed to release on July 24th, but the date got pushed back due to COVID-19. Now, Hercules’ debut is up in the air.
