Tim Burton and Josh Brolin could make new Hunchback

Waiting for script to arrive

Tim Burton has yet to shoot his next film, gothic TV adap Dark Shadows, but he’s already looking to the future for the project after that.

And word has it that the director is considering a new film version of Victor Hugo’s 1831 novel The Hunchback Of Notre Dame.

Not only that, but Burton would have Josh Brolin onboard as both producer and star – a switch-up to the director’s usual collaboration routine with Johnny Depp.

Considering Burton’s plate is currently still full with Dark Shadows, the Hunchback production is in very early stages.

Heat Vision report that the director will only officially sign once the script by Sherlock Holmes 2 scribes Kieran and Michele Mulroney has been completed.

For those who haven’t seen the Disney version of the yarn, Hunchback centres on a deformed bell-ringer in Notre Dame who falls in love with a gypsy.

Perfect match? Or hellish combination? Think Burton and Brolin will be able to craft a great new version of Hunchback? Talk to us below...

      Remember when Burton came up with original films (scissorhands, beetlejuice, ed wood) and didnt do adaptions? Yeah those days are gone.
