Golden Globe winner Idris Elba will star as the Hunchback of Notre Dame in Netflix's new project. In addition to this, the actor will produce and direct the latest take on the nineteenth century Gothic romance, as well as produce the orignal music for the feature, which has been described as a "sonic and musical experience."

Along with Elba, Fred Berger ("La La Land") and Brian Kavanaugh-Jones (Midnight Special) will produce, with Michael Mitnick scripting the modern take on the Victor Hugo classic.

Earlier this year, Elba made his directorial debut with Sundance drama Yardie, and has since taking a liking to behind the camera work. He is set to be offering his talents on another Netflix project, Turn Up Charlie in which he will star and produce. Elba was also the creator of the show which was ordered straight-to-series.
