Tim Burton directing live-action Dumbo remake

Slightly eyebrow-raising news emerging from Disney this morning, with THR reporting that Tim Burton is on board to direct a live-action remake of Dumbo.

Disney is on a run of live-action remakes of some of its classic properties, with the seminal story of a flying circus elephant the latest to receive the treatment.

As you might expect, the new film will use a blend of CGI and live-action to bring the story to life, with THR claiming that the update will include “a unique family story that parallels Dumbo's journey.”

That addition comes courtesy of Ehren Kruger, who is currently working on a final draft of the script. Kruger will also co-produce alongside Justin Springer.

No release date has been confirmed for the film as yet, although the studio’s latest live-action makeover, Cinderella, opens in US cinemas this weekend.

    About “Dumbo”

    From Disney and visionary director Tim Burton, the all-new grand live-action adventure “Dumbo” expands on the beloved classic story where differences are celebrated, family is cherished and dreams take flight. Circus owner Max Medici (Danny DeVito) enlists former star Holt Farrier (Colin Farrell) and his children Milly (Nico Parker) and Joe (Finley Hobbins) to care for a newborn elephant whose oversized ears make him a laughingstock in an already struggling circus. But when they discover that Dumbo can fly, the circus makes an incredible comeback, attracting persuasive entrepreneur V.A. Vandevere (Michael Keaton), who recruits the peculiar pachyderm for his newest, larger-than-life entertainment venture, Dreamland. Dumbo soars to new heights alongside a charming and spectacular aerial artist, Colette Marchant (Eva Green), until Holt learns that beneath its shiny veneer, Dreamland is full of dark secrets.


    Directed by Tim Burton (“Alice in Wonderland,” “Charlie and the Chocolate Factory”) from a screenplay by Ehren Kruger (“Ophelia,” “Dream House”), and produced by Justin Springer (“TRON: Legacy”), Kruger, Katterli Frauenfelder (“Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children,” “Big Eyes”) and Derek Frey (“Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children,” “Frankenweenie”), “Dumbo” flies into Philippine theaters on March 2019.
