Disney announced today that the live –action remake of ‘Mulan’, which is being fast-tracked, is slated for a Nov. 2, 2018, release in theatres.
Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver wrote the most recent draft of the screenplay, following a spec script by Elizabeth Martin and Lauren Hynek that Disney purchased in 2015. No director or star has been announced for the project yet.
The news that the studio is turning its 1998 animated hit into a live-action title comes after such successes as ‘Maleficent’, ‘The Jungle Book’ and ‘Cinderella’, among other titles. And Disney is currently gearing up for the release of the live-action ‘Beauty and the Beast’, which opens March 17 and stars Emma Watson.
