Will Smith confirmed to play Aladdin's Genie in real life action version of Disney favourite

Meanwhile, Disney bosses also confirmed the casting for their other major animated-to-live action reboot, Dumbo, which Will Smith was also in early talks for. That film has just begun production in London with Tim Burton in the director's chair and a cast which includes previously announced former Bond girl Eva Green as a French trapeze artist named Colette who is employed by the villain of the piece, Vandermere.

Tom Hanks was once slated to sign on for that role but the job has now been filled by Spider-man: Homecoming standout, Michael Keaton. Batman Returns star Danny DeVito, meanwhile, is a circus owner while Colin Farrell nabbed the final leading spot, once linked to both Will and Chris Pine, as a widowed dad who befriends the famous elephant.
