According to the Hollywood Reporter, the new Hercules is in early development and the Russo brothers are the only producers on the project but will not direct.

The original film, which was released 23 years ago, follows the young Hercules (voiced by Tate Donovan) - Zeus' son - who was snatched by Hades (James Woods) and forced to live among mortals as half-man, half-God.

Retaining superhuman strength, Hercules needs to perform a rite of passage on Earth to prove himself worthy of living on Mount Olympus. With the help of a satyr - we've all been there - he learns what really makes a hero.

This satyr, Philoctetes, was voiced by Danny DeVito, and fans would also like to see the 75-year-old reprise the role:
