Jordan Peele Reportedly Wants to Direct a ‘Gargoyles’ Movie at Disney

In the mid-1990s, Walt Disney Television produced an animated series called Gargoyles about a group of creatures that were turned to stone during the day but protected New York City by night. A stylistic successor to Batman: The Animated Series, the show featured darker storylines than were typically found in animation of that era and gained a cult following. Its small but loyal fan base has been clamoring for a movie version for years, and now it appears that one of Hollywood’s hottest directors wants to direct one.

A new report says Jordan Peele, who won an Oscar for writing last year’s cultural phenomenon Get Out, has actually pitched a new movie take on the animated series to Disney. Read more about the possible Jordan Peele Gargoyles movie below.

In today’s edition of the entertainment industry newsletter The Ankler, writer Richard Rushfield reports that Peele “walk[ed] in and says he wants to do a new version of Gargoyles.” But instead of green lighting it or turning it down outright, Disney is apparently sitting on its hands.


“How do you turn down Jordan Peele? Well, you can’t. Who wants to be responsible for that decision? So in the absence of a good reason to say no, but prevented by their Big IP box from saying yes, Disney is slow walking the decision. It’s hoping, it seems, that they’ll run out the clock, he’ll sign other deals elsewhere, and the project will just fade away.”

Rushfield suggests that because Peele’s take on Gargoyles doesn’t fit neatly within Disney’s branded silos (live-action fairy tale, Star Wars, Pixar, Marvel), the studio sees it as too much of a risk. He characterizes the company’s lack of decisiveness as being based on the paralyzing fear of not wanting to turn down a project that may turn out to be a great idea. Instead of turn it down, he says, they’ll just play a waiting game with Peele and patiently sit there until he moves on to something else.

I’m torn on this one because I watched Gargoyles and appreciated it when I was younger, but it didn’t have a lasting impact on me that Batman: The Animated Series did. (The shows shared some of the same creative team.) Part of me wants this project to fade away so Peele can work on more original movies, but I am admittedly intrigued to see what he would do with a movie version of this concept. On paper, the premise sounds a little like the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles – a living clan of gargoyles are led by a character named Goliath, and a sympathetic female cop helps them fight bad guys. It’s not like a film version of this type of story would be unprecedented, and seeing what a filmmaker as gifted and thoughtful as Peele might do with commentary about these creatures who are “other-ized” and yet still protect their community could be fascinating. But then again, the name recognition of this show may not be enough for Disney to give this the budget it might need.

Ho letto altrove che la Disney non è al momento coinvolta in alcun modo nella produzione, non c'è uno Studio specifico interessato alla produzione del film, è pura ricerca di un distributore e un'idea coccolata dal regista.

Questa idea la coccolerei anch'io.

Gragoyles (o almeno, da quanto mi ricordo, la prima serie) è stato uno dei prodotti più adulti, ma al contempo adatto agli adolescenti, mai prodotti dalla Disney. E una versione live action avrebbe la sua ragione d'essere.

Già! Poi tutto quel rifarsi al medioevo, le varie mitologie, le leggende... quel pizzico di soap opera... la proponessero oggi ad Iger penso che la sua reazione sarebbe questa: post-6-1111346498.gif post-6-1111346498.gif post-6-1111346498.gif Roftl.gif

Sì Gargoyles era un cartone molto innovativo, moderno , adulto… serie come quella in Disney non ne hanno mai fatte (né prima né dopo)

Q: Is the live-action Gargoyles film happening or was it canceled?

The DisInsider: It was never happening. Jordan Peele ("Get Out") pitched it, that's all.

Dal sito LRM:

Keith David, Star Of Gargoyles, Would Love To Return As Goliath In A New Series

Surprise, surprise a lot of my favorite animated series have been celebrating so many years since their release. Another one of those that is ready to celebrate it’s 25th anniversary is Gargoyles, which first debuted on ABC. Since then it has become a cult favorite that had even got the attention of the popular horror writer and director Jordan Peele that reportedly pitched a live action film to Disney, who at the time weren’t very interested. With the fan base that Gargoyles has it’s a mystery as to why the Mouse has not pulled the trigger on a new version of the property.

Since the 25th anniversary is right around the corner, comicbook.com spoke with series star Keith David, who was the voice of Goliath the protagonist of the series. He talked about how that was one of his favorite roles and also about how he didn’t understand how the series could be cancelled after only three seasons. “You know, those of us who were involved from the beginning… I’ve always wondered why they stopped it in the first place,” said Daivd. “You know, he was absolutely one of my very, very, very, very favorite characters. I’ve always maintained that when I grow up, I want to be like Goliath.” So would David be up to reprise his role as Goliath if the series was ever brought back? “[We’ve wondered] why we haven’t come back to a reboot,” said David. “I mean, I would love nothing more than to revisit Goliath.”

The series first hit ABC in October of 1994 and it had a total of 78 episodes. An interesting thing about this series is that it had a very long second season that ran for 52 episodes. What is considered by most as the third season was called Gargoyles: The Goliath Chronicles. Although Disney was not feeling Peele’s live action Gargoyles film, they might want to think about bringing the animated series back, especially now that they have a streaming service that they need to pump content into. Although they are already doing a one heck of a job bringing all kinds of properties together to make it very irresistible.
