In a new attempt by Disney to recreate its animation classics Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin, and The Little Mermaid, it was revealed that the live action version of Hercules, at the hands of the Russo brothers, would have as protagonists Taron Egerton and Ariana Grande.
According to information from Daniel Richtman via CRB (one of the most reliable sources in the Marvel Universe), Egerton will be responsible for bringing Hercules to life, while Ariana Grande will play Megara.
In 2020, it was announced that this new installment of the superhero with unlimited power would be a live-action remake, a format that the American entertainment company has been betting on in recent years for its great animated classics, directed by Joe and Anthony Russo and Guy Ritchie.
Taron Egerton started to stand out with his role as Eggsy in King Man and most recently played Jimmy in the miniseries about serial killer Larry Hall, Locked Up with the Devil.
While Ariana Grande is best known for her successful career as a pop singer, she is no stranger to the world of acting, having started working on series like Victorious as a teenager, and before the writer-actor war, she worked on the film adaptation of the Broadway musical Evil.
The premiere of the live-action adaptation of “Hercules” is to be published directly on the Disney+ streaming platform. However, due to the strike by actors and writers in Hollywood, there is no approximate release date.
