'Hunchback of Notre Dame' Set to Get Disney Live-Action Adaptation

The Hunchback of Notre Dame is heading back to theaters!

The animated Disney classic is the latest film set to be made into a live-action movie.

According to Deadline, the tale will receive a musical adaption, simply titled Hunchback.

The film will gather inspiration both from the 1996 animated film and Victor Hugo‘s original book.

The Hunchback of Notre Dame centers on Quasimodo, the bell-ringer of Notre Dame Cathedral, who bides his time locked away in a tower. He longs to be with other people, leading to his chance encounter with the enchanting Gypsy Esmeralda. When the beautiful young woman catches the attention of Quasimodo’s guardian, sinister Frollo, Quasimodo must help to keep her out of his clutches.

Josh Gad will serve as a producer and is rumored to play the leading role.

Playwright David Henry Hwang will pen the script, with Alan Menken and Stephen Schwartz writing the music for the production.
