Idris Elba is set to star in, direct, and produce the currently untitled modern retelling of Victor Hugo’s “The Hunchback of Notre Dame” for Netflix, sources confirmed to Variety.

Based on the classic 19th century gothic romance novel, the story follows Quasimodo, a hunchback, who falls in love with the gypsy Esmeralda. Elba will play Quasimodo in the feature.

I'd watch this just because of Elba. The "modern retelling" doesn't do much for me otherwise.
