Dumbo Live-Action Movie Details

Disney's Live-Action Dumbo Is Coming Whether You Like It or Not

Disney is in the middle of remaking all your favorite animated films with real people, and we recently got some big news about the live-action Dumbo film. After Will Smith, Chris Pine, and Casey Affleck all passed on the role, Colin Farrell is in talks to play the father of a group of children who fall for the adorable floppy-eared elephant. If his deal goes through, Farrell would be starring alongside Eva Green (as a French trapeze artist) and Danny DeVito (as the ringmaster).

The remake of the 1941 film is in good hands; Tim Burton has signed on to direct, and Ehren Kruger (responsible for three Transformers movies) is adapting the screenplay. On second thought . . . we're nervous about this.
