According to The Hollywood Reporter, Elba will direct and produce music for the new adaptation of Notre Dame Cathedral. Moreover, Idris will also play the main role in the upcoming film.

Victor Hugo's novel, which tells the story of the bell-ringer Quasimodo and the gypsy woman Esmeralda, has been transferred to the big screens many times. In 1923, Universal released a horror film, and in 1956, Notre Dame Cathedral was released, starring Gina Lollobrigida and Anthony Quinn. Disney also shot its own version, releasing an animated film about Quasimodo in 1996. The Netflix film will be a musical and will be produced by Elba himself, Fred Berger (La La Land) and Brian Cavanagh-Jones (Midnight Special).


Idris Elba's directorial debut was the crime drama Yardi, which premiered at the Sundance Festival this year. He has an actor and experience of cooperation with Netflix: Elba not only played in the film Rootless Animals, receiving a nomination for the Golden Globe for it, but is also preparing a comedy series about a DJ experiencing difficulties in life for an online service.
