Live-Action ‘Atlantis’ Reportedly “In the Works” at Disney and Eyeing Tom Holland as Milo Thatch. In an era of live-action remakes, Disney may be turning its attention to more underrated Disney Films. According to The Illuminerdi, Atlantis: The Lost Empire is well on its way to becoming a live-action remake.

Since Disney first announced the idea of remaking previously animated films into live-action versions, Disney fans have been abuzz with film suggestions and fan-made casting choices. Popular choices for remakes amongst fans are: Hercules, Treasure Planet, Hunchback of Notre Dame, Pocahontas, Pinocchio, The Sword in the Stone, and recently rumored to be in the pipeline, Atlantis: The Lost Empire.

With every tremor about a new remake comes a wave of speculation and rumors. Recent rumors claim Disney may be looking to cast Tom Holland as Milo Thatch in a live-action version of Atlantis: The Lost Empire. Also rumored was Guillermo del Toro to direct, which he immediately shut down via his verified Twitter account, @RealGDT.

According to a film synopsis from Google, “Disney’s Atlantis: The Lost Empire  is about an inexperienced young adventurer becomes the key to unraveling an ancient mystery when he joins up with a group of daredevil explorers to find the legendary lost empire of Atlantis. A naive-but-determined museum cartographer Milo Thatch (Michael J. Fox), dreams of completing the quest begun by his late grandfather, a famous explorer. When a journal surfaces, an eccentric billionaire funds an expedition and the action shifts to high gear.”
