Disney sure isn’t holding back on the goldmine that is turning their catalog of animated movies into live action projects. With the success of Jungle Book & Beauty and the Beast, Disney now has quite a few upcoming live action remakes. We have Lion King with its iconic cast, Aladdin and Mulan along with Sword in the Stone!
According to a report from THR, Juan Carlos Fresnadillo (28 Weeks Later) is apparently in negotiation talks with Disney to direct Stone. The script was penned by Bryan Cogman, a producer/writer on HBO’s Game of Thrones. Fresnadillo is known for his dark tones and has a keen liking to horror movies.
I’m excited to see how this project turns out, along with the other gems Disney has up their sleeves! It’s interesting that the script was written by a Game of Thrones writer because that is exactly the vibes I got from this movie once it was announced. What do you guys think of this movie? Are we here for it? Let me know!
No word yet on the release date for Stone but stay tuned for more details!
