Disney’s Live-Action Bambi Remake Loses Its Oscar-Winning Director

One can’t help but wonder if the recent trend of horror movies based on public domain properties had anything to do with this movie possibly being scrapped. The violent “Bambi: The Revenge” is currently in the works, following in the footsteps of “Winnie the Pooh: Blood and Honey.” It’s not difficult to imagine Disney wanting to avoid wading into those same waters right now. It’s, at the very least, something that can’t be ignored.

As for Polley, she’s yet to set her next project after winning the Oscar for Best Adapted Screenplay for “Women Talking” last year. Given that she was also nominated for an Oscar for her work on 2008’s “Away From Her” as well, we’re talking about a very talented, very respected filmmaker here. All of this to say, while it was challenging for Polley to get a movie made for a full decade following “Take This Waltz,” it’s hard to imagine her going that long without making a movie again, with or without a high-profile Disney remake on her resume.

Meanwhile, on the live-action Disney remake front, the studio still has several coming down the pipeline, including the “Moana” remake, which will bring back The Rock as Maui. The live-action version of “Lilo & Stitch” is also in production.

The live-action “Bambi” remake does not currently have a release date.
