  • [Rumor] Live-Action Dumbo planned

    Live-Action 'Dumbo' in the Works From 'Transformers' Writer (Exclusive)

    Disney is developing a live-action take on its 1941 animated classic Dumbo and has Transformers franchise writer Ehren Kruger penning the script.

    Justin Springer, who worked on Tron: Legacy as well as Oblivion, is producing, as will Kruger.


    The new take involves the adaptation of the original movie while adding a unique family story that parallels Dumbo's story. Also, the studio believes that because of the current state of CG technology, live-action movies featuring a soaring pachyderm (or any animal for that matter) are viable.


    Among the projects in the pipeline, Disney has a live-action take on Cinderella opening March 13, is in preproduction on The Jungle Book that Jon Favreau is directing and just put Bill Condon on a live-action remake of Beauty and the Beast.

      I need to stop reading things like this. Every time I do I get migraines from my eyes rolling out of their sockets.

      Seriously, guys? Hey, why not reshoot Citizen Kane with Uwe Boll as director?

        While I absolutely LOVE the original Dumbo, the idea of seeing a "live" elephant with proportionately huge ears would be not just a little disturbing. Hoping this gets shelved fairly quickly.
