Guy Ritchie to Direct Live-Action Adaptation of “Hercules”

According to Deadline, Guy Ritchie, director of Disney’s live-action Aladdin film, will be helming another live-action adaptation: Hercules.

What’s Happening:

  • Aladdin was Ritchie’s first film to crack the billion-dollar gross mark, and now he’s back in business with Disney to direct an adaptation of the 1997 animated classic, Hercules.
  • The film will be produced by AGBO, the production company run by Avengers: Endgame directors Joe & Anthony Russo.
  • The studio is in the process of hiring writers after Dave Callaham wrote a first draft.
  • This deal was made by CAA, before Ritchie last month exited the agency and went to WME.
