Will Smith Eyeing Disney’s Live-Action “Dumbo”

Will Smith is circling to star in director Tim Burton live-action adaptation of the classic Disney 1941 animated film “Dumbo”.

The Mouse House is moving aggressively on getting the big-eared, lovable elephant character on the big screen and is moving toward a production start with a script by Ehren Kruger.

Smith has been shooting David Ayer’s Netflix film “Bright” and is currently set to reteam with Martin Lawrence on Joe Carnahan’s “Bad Boys For Life” which aims to shoot this year.
