HOLLYWOOD- Tom Ford’s third film will be a live-action remake of Disney’s The Rescuers.
Following his successful debut A Single Man and his more recent Nocturnal Animals, fashion designer turned cineaste Tom Ford is to take the helm of a live-action adaptation of Disney favorite The Rescuers. Very little is known about the new version of the children’s classic. Rumor has it that Emily Blunt and Colin Firth are in talks to appear in the roles of Bianca and Bernie, the two mice who go on a mission to rescue a little girl being held captive in a swamp.
Tom Ford spoke EXCLUSIVELY with the Studio Exec about his new film:
The difficult thing will be designing the costumes for the actors so that they look like mice. It is going to be very very difficult. I keep telling Disney, you know how we should do this? As a cartoon. But they same to be determined to do it live-action and I don’t know why.
There’s already a cartoon version.
There is? That I did not know.
Released in 1977.
Huh! How did they get the actors to look like mice?
Well, because it was a cartoon.
Well, you see there you go. Didn’t I just say?
The Rescuers will be released in 2018.
