House of Flying Daggers director Zhang Yimou is in negotiations to join Warner Bros' Quasimodo.

The project is based on the original Hunchback of Notre Dame novel, and has been in development for more than two years, according to Variety.

Josh Brolin signed up for the project back in 2011, and Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows writers Kieran and Michele Mulroney have completed a screenplay.

Victor Hugo's novel Notre Dame de Paris was first published in 1931 and centres on Quasimodo, the deformed bell-ringer of Notre Dame Cathedral who falls for gypsy Esmeralda.

The story has been adapted several times for the big screen, including 1939's black-and-white classic and Disney's 1996 animated version.

Quasimodo is yet to be assigned a release date.
