Disney is looking to make a live action adaptation of The Hunchback Of Notre Dame, and Broadway talent is of course involved. Alan Menken and Stephen Schwartz, who composed the score of the 1996 animated film, will write the music again here. David Henry Hwang is writing the screenplay, while Josh Gad is attached as a producer. This film will draw from both the animated film and Victor Hugo’s original novel, but not Disney’s recent stage adaptation. https://www.hollywoodreporter.com/heat-vision/live-action-hunchback-movie-works-at-disney-1176584
