Eva Green is in early talks for the female lead in Tim Burton’s live-action adaptation of “Dumbo” at Disney Pictures.
The original film followed a ridiculed baby circus elephant, who, with the help of a mouse, worked to achieve his full potential. Burton’s film will blend live action and CG animation.
The talks come about as a deal for Chris Pine to play the male lead in the film has fallen through in recent days. Burton helms from Ehren Kruger’s script while Kruger and Justin Springer will produce.
