Disney’s “Gargoyles” was a popular animated series back in the mid-Ninties. So popular there were plans at one point for a live-action feature. Now it looks like Disney is finally going to make a big screen feature about gargoyles, but don’t expect it to have anything to do with the cartoon.
The Hollywood Reporter’s Heat Vision Blog reports that Lauren Shuler Donner and Jack Leslie are producing a feature for Disney based on medieval gargoyle mythology, though the film will be set in modern times and have zero ties to the popular 1990’s Disney cartoon. They are in the process of hiring Zoe Green to pen the screenplay. Green has two projects currently in development: Tigress is being produced by Stan Lee’s production company for Disney, and Rob Reiner is attached to direct her fantasy project Book of Shadows for Castle Rock Entertainment.
Now just one question remains to answered. What will Nicolas Cage look like as a stone gargoyle come to life?
