Tim Burton to direct a live-action Dumbo remake
Tim Burton has signed on to direct a remake of Dumbo for Disney. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the film will be a mix of live action and CGI, with a script written by Transformers franchise screenwriter Ehren Kruger.
Dumbo, which doesn’t yet have a release date, is only the latest classic Disney film the company is trying to revamp. Cinderella, which stars Downton Abbey‘s Lily James in the title role, hits theaters this Friday. Emma Watson also recently signed on to play Belle in the upcoming Beauty and the Beast remake.
