The bells of Notre Dame are starting to ring as “Hero” helmer Zhang Yimou is in talks to direct “Quasimodo” for Warner Bros.
The classic Victor Hugo novel “The Hunchback of Notre Dame” follows a gypsy girl who is framed for murder, and only the deformed bellringer of Notre Dame Cathedral, Quasimodo, can save her.
Kieran and Michele Mulroney penned the original script.
Zhang has made a career for his visual style and incredibly choreographed fight sequences in films like “Hero” and “House of Flying Daggers.”
The CAA-repped Zhang most recently directed Christian Bale in the war pic “Flowers of War.”
