Robin Hood remake in the works at Disney+ with 'Blindspotting' director


Disney has targeted Robin Hood as the latest of its animated classics to get the remake treatment.

Carlos Lopez Estrada, perhaps best known for directing the 2018 crime movie Blindspotting, is on board to helm the project, which is being written by Kari Granlund. Granlund is already in the Disney fold after having written the studio’s recent remake of Lady and the Tramp.

Justin Springer, who counts the studio’s Dumbo and Tron Legacy amongst his credits, is producing the feature being developed for the studio’s Disney+ streaming service.
The new take is said to be a musical and again will feature the characters as anthropomorphic, this time in a live-action/CG hybrid format.
