Will Smith may team with Tim Burton for the live action Dumbo movie

Tim Burton may have found a star for his upcoming live action Dumbo movie. Deadline is reporting that Will Smith is in talks for a leading role in the big-screen take on the Disney animated classic. It is unknown what role Smith might be playing or even how similar the live action Dumbo‘s narrative will be to the original.

Dumbo, released in 1941, marked Disney’s fourth full-length animated feature and told the story of a young circus elephant who, mocked for his enormous ears, discovers that he can actually use them to fly. The new film, which is planned to blend CGI and live-action, will feature a screenplay by Transformers scribe Ehren Kruger.

Disney has been finding quite a bit of success lately with live action takes on their classic films. Burton’s own Alice in Wonderland took in more than a billion at the international box office with the studio’s most recent live action adaptation, Jon Favreau’s The Jungle Book, having brought in more than $966 million. Next up is the highly-anticipated Beauty and the Beast, set to arrive in theaters March 17.

Will Smith recently starred in the DC Comics ensemble suicide Squad, playing the part of Deadshot. The star is currently reteaming with suicide Squad director David Ayer for Bright. Likened to Ayer’s own End of Watch, Bright takes place in a contemporary fantasy realm and follows a cop (Smith) and his Orc partner (Joel Edgerton).

Will Smith hasn't really worked with a true visionary director since Michael Mann 16 years ago. He should do it.

Dumbo and Bad Boys for Life are supposed to start filming at the same time, sources tell Variety. So if Smith goes with the Disney movie, that will either push back Bad Boys 3 or possibly even lead to its cancellation.

didn't you learn from passing on the matrix will?

Tom Hanks Offered Dumbo Villain Role


[pic - click to view]



Some actors make a career out of playing the good guy, much like Tom Hanks has throughout the majority of his time on screen. But every now and then, the Academy Award winner does find time to cut loose and play a baddie. Well, if current rumors are true, Hanks is circling his latest villainous turn, and it's a pretty big one. You see, Tom Hanks may play the villain to Tim Burton's Dumbo, opposite Will Smith.

Variety grabbed the scoop today, around the same time that Will Smith was announced as another potential live-action cast member, in the story of a father whose kids befriend the classic elephant at the circus. Hanks' role has been described merely as "the villain" of the film, but if the live-action Dumbo follows the story structure of the original film, he'll more than likely be the ringmaster of the circus that Dumbo is performing in. All that's standing in the way of Tom Hanks' possible participation is another role he's been circling.


[pic - click to view]



As previously reported, Hanks has been looking at playing a lead in the World War II naval drama, The Grey Hound. Should he take the role, the Sully actor would be playing a commanding officer whose going through a crisis of professional faith in combat. Undoubtedly, this other role sounds like a shoo-in for Hanks, as it touches on a couple other major roles that he's played throughout his career. While The Grey Hound is the safer option of the two, Dumbo's villainous lead could be a nice change of pace for Tom Hanks, as it gives him an opportunity to break out of his usual mold.

Despite his limited experience in villainous behavior, Hanks has certainly made for a compelling villain / anti-hero before. With straight up villainy radiating from him in The Ladykillers and Cloud Atlas, as well as his memorable turn as a mob hitman on the run in Road To Perdition, Tom Hanks isn't taking a completely alien risk by possibly playing the lead villain in Dumbo. If anything, the cartoon-ish nature of the film may help Hanks cleanse his palette before moving onto the next project that'll undoubtedly return him to his usual type of project.

Most interesting of all would be the fact that should Tom Hanks sign on as the villain in Dumbo, he'll be working with Tim Burton for the first time. Whether the more reformed or more indulgent Burton shows up to direct the film, having Hanks in the mix to work on either side of the Burtonian spectrum is an intriguing enough possibility to want to see where it goes. For now, there is no release date for Dumbo just yet, but production is looking to start in the near future.
