As you have probably noticed, we don't really cover much of Disney's blasphemous live action adaptations of their animated classics here, as I find their casting choices mediocre at best or offensive at worst, and there seem to be a lot of new ones coming up: after the currently playing Aladdin, and then Lion King next week, they're preparing new Snow White, new live action Mulan (I hear we might be getting a teaser for that one soon), Cruella with Emma Stone and also Hunchback of Notre Damme, and I'm sure you've all been shocked with the latest casting for Little Mermaid adaptation. But here is one I might stand behind: according to latest juicy rumours swirling around the net, Disney wants Alexander Skarsgard for the lead role in their live action movie adaptation of HERCULES! What do you say on that? I sure wouldn't mind that choice for the famous Greek hero tasked with fulfilling impossible missions for Gods. I've also heard somewhere that Amber Heard might be a candidate for gorgeous Megara in the remake. We Got This Covered, who first brought this story,
reports that Disney might be looking for a director with a fresh vision for the whole project. Stay tuned for more news on the project which is in very early stages of development.
