While Tim Burton’s remake of classic animation Dumbo may be a dubious undertaking, Hollywood’s finest are lining up to star.
Already Eva Green and Danny DeVito have confirmed their involvement, with The Lobster's Colin Farrell now being eyed for a leading role.
Farrell was recently seen in JK Rowling’s last wizarding adventure Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them, and will next appear in The Beguiled and The Killing of a Sacred Deer.
Dumbo - which marks Green’s third film with Burton following Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children and Dark Shadows - will take inspiration from The Jungle Book, which merged the use of live-action and CGI.
Other live-action remakes Disney currently have lined up include The Lion King, Aladdin, The Sword in the Stone, and Mulan.
