Disney Developing Live-Action ‘Hunchback of Notre Dame’

A live-action remake of Disney’s Hunchback of Notre Dame is in the works. According to the Hollywood Reporter, Tony-winning playwright David Henry Hwang will write the feature which will draw from the 1831 Victor Hugo novel and the 1996 Disney animated movie.

Alan Menken and Stephen Schwartz, who worked on the 1996 animated version, will return to create the music for the film.
The movie will not draw from the staged Hunchback production from Menken and Schwartz.

The article goes on to say Josh Gad, who starred in Disney’s 2017 live-action Beauty and the Beast, is already attached to the film.

Other upcoming Disney live-action films include AladdinThe Lion King, Dumbo, Lady and the Tramp and Mulan (Lady and the Tramp will be a Disney+ streaming service offering.)

Freeform to Develop Comedy ‘National Parker,’ From Jenna Fischer and Alexandra Henrikson

Freeform announced today that it has put into development “National Parker,” a half-hour comedy from actress and executive producer Jenna Fischer (“Splitting Up Together”), and writer Alexandra Henrikson with Warner Horizon Scripted Television.

  • When social media–obsessed Parker Adams’ world comes crashing down after a breakup, she decides to put her New York City life behind her and become an adult with a real job – as a national park ranger at Alaska’s Hickberry National Park.
  • Jenna Fischer (“Splitting Up Together” and “The Office”) will serve as executive producer.
  • Alexandra Henrikson (“Maniac”) will serve as co-executive producer and is also set to write the pilot script.
  • Jenna Fischer says, “When Alex and I met we became fast friends, bonding over our love of national parks, activism and a desire to create projects for badass funny women. We also wanted to showcase the ingenuity and brilliance of the often-underestimated millennial generation. ‘National Parker’ is what sprang forth. We couldn’t be more thrilled to be working with Warner Horizon and Freeform to bring ‘National Parker’ to life.”
