The project is based on the 19th century gothic romance novel, following Quasimodo, who falls in love with a gypsy by the name of Esmeralda. Elba will play Quasimodo.
Disney’s 1996 animated version of the story, featuring Kevin Kline and Demi Moore, is undoubtedly the most popular
Michael Mitnick will write Netflix’s modern day retelling. Fred Berger and Brian Kavanaugh-Jones will produce for Automatik, along with Elba and Green Door’s Ana Garanito.
