Guy Ritchie is teaming up with ABC News’ parent company Disney once again, this time for a live-action version of the 1997 animated movie Hercules.

Backing Ritchie, Deadline reports, is AGBO, the production shingle started by Joe and Anthony Russo, the sibling directors of four Disney-owned Marvel Studios blockbusters, including Avengers: Endgame.

The last time Ritchie cracked open the Disney vault, as they used to say, it was for 2019’s live-action Aladdin — and it was a billion-dollar hit for the Snatch and Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels veteran.
