Ryan, Russell Team For “Hunchback” Adaptation

Max Ryan (“Death Race,” “Sex and the City 2”) will star and Chuck Russell (“The Scorpion King”) is set to direct “The Hunchback” for Quercus Enterprises, Radar Pictures and Loop Films.

Inspired by Victor Hugo’s novel “The Hunchback of Notre Dame”, specific plot details such as whether the film will keep the period setting and so on are being kept under wraps.

Ryan and Julio Ponce-Palmieri penned the script while Russell, Ted Fields, Aldo LaPietra and Jonah Loop will produce. The project aims to begin shooting next year in Serbia.
