Disney has brought on Alan Arkin to play Wall Street tycoon J. Griffin Remington in Tim Burton’s live-action Dumbo film that is currently in production.
“The reimagined story will follow a former circus star, played by Collin Farrell, who returns to the big tent after coming home from war. He finds work with a struggling circus and is put in charge of a newborn elephant whose oversized ears make him the laughing stock of the show.”
The cast is coming together and already includes stars such as Eva Green, Michael Keaton, Colin Farrell, and Danny DeVito.
Dumbo is set to hit theaters on March 29, 2019.
