Disney is working on their new live-action pieces and it looks like Dumbo is next on their list with director Tim Burton at the helm. Sources are saying Disney wants Will Smith to star in the film.
Will Smith’s latest film Collateral Beauty wasn't exactly a huge hit so hopefully, Dumbo, which will be scripted by Ehren Kruger, may be something will is willing to take a look at. Smith certainly wouldn’t be the first major actor to star in one of Disney’s live action flicks. Angelina Jolie starred in Maleficent, Johnny Depp was in Alice in Wonderland and Emma Stone will star in 101 Dalmatians as the evil Cruella De Ville.
