Disney reportedly pursuing Baz Luhrmann for live-action remake of Tangled

  • Baz Luhrmann is being considered by Disney to direct a live-action remake of Tangled.
  • Tangled is a retelling of the classic fairy tale Rapunzel featuring the voices of Mandy Moore and Zachary Levi.
  • This comes after Disney’s success with other live-action adaptations of their animated classics.

According to recent reports, Disney is interested in hiring Baz Luhrmann to direct a live-action adaptation of their animated film, Tangled. Luhrmann, known for his work on films like Moulin Rouge! and The Great Gatsby, is seen as a potential fit for a modern-day retelling of the classic fairy tale, Rapunzel.

Tangled, which was released in 2010, features the voice talents of Mandy Moore and Zachary Levi. The film tells the story of Rapunzel, a princess with magical long hair, who has been locked in a tower by an evil witch. The film became a hit, grossing more than $590 million at the global box office.

Disney has found significant success in recent years with live-action remakes of their animated classics, such as The Lion King, Aladdin, and Beauty and the Beast. Luhrmann’s involvement in a Tangled adaptation would follow in the footsteps of other notable directors like Jon Favreau and Guy Ritchie who have worked on these blockbuster projects.

However, it is important to note that neither Disney nor Baz Luhrmann have officially confirmed the reports.
