Hero director Zhang Yimou is in talks to direct Josh Brolin's big screen adaptation of Victor Hugo'sThe Hunchback of Notre Dame called Quasimodo.
The film production is set up at Warner Bros. Brolin will star in the film, which follows a gypsy girl who is framed for murder, and only the deformed bellringer of Notre Dame Cathedral, Quasimodo, can save her. I'm not sure who Brolin is playing, but I love this story, and I think it has potential to be a great new adaptation.
Zhang has an awesome visual style and is mostly known for his epic fight choreography in films like House of Flying Daggers. Zhang most recently directed Christian Bale in Flowers of War.
