Like Disney's update of The Jungle Book and Tim Burton's upcoming remake of Dumbo, the film is expected to use a mixture of live-action and highly realistic CGI animation for its animal protagonists. Lady ends up meeting a mongrel known as the Tramp on the streets.

The news comes to us from The Hollywood Reporter, who reminds us the film will be directed by The LEGO Ninjago Movie's Charlie Bean, with the intention of being rolled out on Disney's as-yet-unnamed streaming service sometime after its launch in 2019. Lady and the Tramp's script is being written by Andrew Bujalski and the movie is being overseen by Disney's VP of production Jessica Virtue and creative executive Chaz Salembier. Kiersey Clemons (Dope, Neighbors 2) is also already cast in the part of Darling in the movie, the human owner of Lady.

Thompson has been in high demand ever since she starred opposite Michael B. Jordan in Creed. That was followed up with an expanded role in the second season of HBO's Westworld (she'll also be sticking around for Season 3), a co-starring role in Alex Garland's Annihilation, and a key performance in Boots Riley's acclaimed satire Sorry To Bother You, one of this year's most talked-about films. Sony clearly liked Thompson's chemistry with Chris Hemsworth in Ragnarok, as the studio cast them as the leads in its Men in Black spinoff. She's represented by Greene & Associates Talent Agency, Mosaic and attorney Jeff Bernstein.
