I’m fairly sure that this is a story I never thought I would write. It seems that Will Smith, most recently Deadshot in DC’s Suicide Squad, is eyeing a role in Tim Burton’s live-action remake of the Disney classic Dumbo. The studio is aggressively moving forward on this project with a script by Ehren Kruger, which could be a roadblock in the path as Smith is currently lined up for Bad Boys For Life from Sony Pictures.
Smith is currently shooting Bright, a new Netflix film from writer Max Landis and director David Ayer. co-starring Joel Edgerton.
There is no word on what part Smith would be looking to play.
