Netflix is set to do an updated version of “The Hunchback of Notre Dame,” to be produced and directed by Idris Elba, who will also star in the feature. The adaptation of the Victor Hugo classic is untitled.
“The feature film will be a sonic and musical experience for which Elba will also produce the music,” Netflix said.
Producers are Fred Berger (“La La Land”) and Brian Kavanaugh-Jones (“Midnight Special”) for Automatik and Elba and Ana Garanito for Elba’s Green Door shingle.
The writer is Michael Mitnick (“The Current War”).
