Questlove is set to direct a new live-action adaptation of Disney’s The Aristocats.
According to Deadline, The Roots musician, producer and filmmaker will reimagine the animated 1970 movie as “a live-action/hybrid.” Questlove, whose real name is Ahmir Khalib Thompson, will also serve as an executive producer and oversee the film’s music.
Will Gluck and Keith Bunin will pen the script, while Tarik Trotter, Shawn Gee and Zarah Zohlman will executive produce the movie on Questlove’s production company Two One Five Entertainment.
The Aristocats joins Disney classics like The Lion King, Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin, and Mulan in getting a live-action remake.
The Little Mermaid, starring Halle Bailey, and Snow White, starring Rachel Zegler, are also ready to release.
