It looks like Disney has found a director for its live-action take on Mulan.
According to THR, McFarland, USA director Niki Caro will be taking on the project. The animated Mulan, released by Disney in 1998, adapted the ancient Chinese legend of Hua Mulan, a female warrior who disguises herself as a man in order to take the place of her aging father in the military.
Caro was previously linked to Marvel’s Captain Marvel but that her schedule on Mulan will likely scupper that idea. Lauren Hynek and Elizabeth Martin provided the initial screenplay for the latter, which has since been rewritten by Rick Jaffa and Amanda Silver.
