“Thrones” Helmer Tackles Live-Action” Mulan”

“Game of Thrones” and “House of Cards” director Alex Graves is in early talks to helm the non-Disney live-action “Mulan” in the works at Sony Pictures and 2.0 Entertainment.

The story is based on the Chinese legend of Hua Mulan, the daughter of an aged warrior who disguises herself as a man in order to take her father’s place in the army and go to war.

Jason Keller (“Mirror Mirror”) penned the script with plans for it to be a Chinese co-production which Doug Belgrad is co-financing.

Disney Pictures, which made the 1998 animated film adaptation of the legend, is moving quickly on its version with a release date of November 2018 targeted.
