Actor Will Smith is in early talks to star in Disney’s live-action adaptation of Dumbo.

If the deal gets finalised, Smith, 48, will play a father of the children who develop a friendship with an elephant after seeing him at the circus, reported ‘Variety’.

According to a source, Oscar-winning actor Tom Hanks was offered a role to play a villain in the film, which he apparently refused.

Beetlejuice helmer Tim Burton is attached to direct from Ehren Kruger’s script, while Justin Springer is producing along with Kruger.
