Brothers Rousseau (“Avengers: Endgame”), acting as producers of the remake “Hercules”told new details about the upcoming project.
The authors do not plan to return to directing films yet Marvel, but they still have a good relationship with Disney. And the brothers have ideas that will help the studio add new elements to the familiar formula – especially against the backdrop of past remakes.
According to Joe Russo, “Hercules” will be “more experimental” in terms of tone and execution, it’s not just another interpretation of the cartoon. BUT Guy Ritchie (“Gentlemen”), acting as the director of the film – an excellent candidate for such purposes. Earlier, Richie, by the way, released a remake for the studio “Aladdin”.
The director is working on the script of the new “Hercules” together with the author of the plot “Shang-Chi”, and the upcoming tape, like the original, will be a musical. But the style of performance will also be different from the cartoon.
Rousseau mentioned that the young audience is now “bred” on TikTok, so the authors will have to slightly change the presentation of musical numbers, taking into account the expectations of the audience. In what exactly this is expressed – he did not explain.
Rousseau’s statement was taken extremely negatively by users on social networks, criticizing a similar approach and posting “depressing” pictures with memes. Many did not see any connection between the TikTok format and the Hercules story at all.
