Rumour has it that Will Smith is going to star in a live-action remake of Dumbo directed by Tim Burton.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, Smith would play the “father who works at the big top and whose children develop a relationship with the pachyderm.”
And Variety is saying that another superstar is in talks to play the role of the villain and that is Tom Hanks.
There’s no news on when the studio will begin shooting the live-action remake of the animated classic from 1941. So, Beauty and the Beast with Emma Watson will have to keep to satisfied in the meantime.
