The film is to debut on the Disney+ streaming service, The Hollywood Reporter said.
Variety said the photo-realistic update will be penned by Lady and the Tramp scribe Kari Granlund and directed by Blindspotting filmmaker Carlos Lopez Estrada.
No voice cast has been announced. The original animated movie featured the literary characters Robin Hood, Little John, Friar Tuck, Maid Marian and the Sheriff of Nottingham as talking — and singing — woodland creatures in medieval England.
Disney also has recently remade its cartoons Lady and the Tramp, Dumbo, The Lion King, Aladdin and Beauty and the Beast into live-action and CGI hybrids.
