Idris Elba to star, direct Hunchback of Notre Dame for Netflix

Netflix has had a busy Wednesday, first with announcing the date for Disenchantment and, now, this bit of news: Idris Elba will star in and direct his take of The Hunchback of Notre Dame.

The Hollywood Reporter was the first to break this story, reporting that Elba will direct and produce this Netflix project under his Green Door company. Green Door will also produce original music for the film.

Michael Mitnick, who wrote The Giver, will pen the modern re-telling of Hunchback.

No expected date of release was given by Netflix.
