live-action hercules

In the last few years, Disney has begun to recreate classic tales for the next generation. These live-action films have become a staple in box offices and fans have been loving them. Today, we found out that the Russo brothers, known for their work with the Avengers, are working on a live-action Hercules film!

At this time, Disney has hired Dave Callaham to write the script for the film. Callaham has written for many action films including The Expendables, Godzilla, and Zombieland: Double Tap. He also has a hand in the upcoming films Wonder Woman 1984 and Marvel’s Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings.

The Russo brothers have been an unstoppable directing duo in the Marvel Cinematic Universe! Fans may recognize their work from Captain America: The Winter Soldier, Captain America: Civil War, and Avengers: Infinity War, and Avengers: Endgame. Currently, Endgame is the highest-grossing film of time, beating out Avatar in a very closely watched box office battle by fans.

Many fans have taken to the internet to cast the film with some of their favorite film stars. Though we don’t have any news about casting for the film yet, it has been fun to see fans putting their dream cast for the live-action Hercules into the world!
