The Hunchback of Notre Dame -- Another Disney Live Action Adaptation

Disney Rings ‘Hunchback’ Bell: David Henry Hwang To Script Live Action Musical, Alan Menken/Stephen Schwartz Writing Music

EXCLUSIVE: Tony-winning M. Butterfly playwright David Henry Hwang has been set by Disney to write Hunchback, a live action musical adaptation of the Victor Hugo novel. Alan Menken and Stephen Schwartz will write the music. Mandeville is producing along with Josh Gad. I had heard that Gad, a star of the Mandeville-produced blockbuster Beauty and the Beast, might play the lead character, but insiders at the studio said no casting is solid at this point.

The cartoon was already a weird idea given the source material. This seems worse.

Sign up Tim Burton!

Not a fan of Gad, so I hope he's not the lead.

Didn't expect to, but I actually love the animated film.

Oh, yes. Tim Burton would be brilliant. And even though I can only take Gad in small doses, I think he could actually work as Quasimodo. Because he's already odd looking without any make-up or latex.

Josh Gag ruins EVEYTHNING.

And at at this rate, so is Disney turning good movies into mindless remakes.

He'd be a good fit for the comic relief gargoyle pig.

Re: The Hunchback of Notre Dame -- Another Disney Live Action Adaptation

I'd totally watch that, I actually really like a lot of that disney movie. That Hellfire song is one of my favorites. There's been a number of broadway shows based off the disney musical, if they based the live action movie off those, they wouldn't be bad.
