Another Disney classic has boarded the live-action remake train. 

The Hollywood Reporter was first to confirm that Disney is in the early development of its 1997 animated musical movie Hercules.

While not much is known of the project, sources confirm that the studio has tapped writer Dave Callaham to pen the script. Joe and Anthony Russo, the Avengers: Endgame and Infinity War filmmakers, are set to produce via their AGBO banner. The Russos are the only producers on the project and will not direct. 

The original retelling of the Greek legend voice starred Tate Donovan as the demigod while James Woods played Hades.
