Tim Burton to Direct Live Action Dumbo


Disney is fully invested in making live-action remakes of their classic animation library.  Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland set the stage a few years back.  In 2014 we saw Angelina Jolie in Maleficient, Cinderella is coming out this Friday, Jon Favreau is wrapping up his Jungle Book feature with the likes of Idris Elba, Scarlett Johansson, Lupita Nyong’o, Bill Murray, Christopher Walken and Ben Kingsley, and casting has begun for the major players in the live action Beauty and the Beast.  I am very curious to see what Emma Watson, Dan Stevens and Luke Evans do with the beloved childhood classic.  However, Disney is not finished yet.  Reports have now surfaced that a live action Dumbo movie is in the works and that Tim Burton will be back to play in the Disney sandbox.  The previous features have remained family friendly, but each leaned a little darker than the animated offering.  A Tim Burton circus scene will likely be providing fodder for children’s nightmares for years to come.  Any guesses for who Johnny Depp and Helena Bonham Carter will be playing?  Thanks for reading.
