Disney doesn’t believe Will Smith is worth the $20 million he asked to be paid to play in their forthcoming ‘Dumbo‘ movie.
Producers of the live action reboot are reportedly in talks with Colin Farrell to fill the position Smith had hoped to bag for $20 million.
Why he didn’t receive it?
‘The Hollywood Reporter‘ shares:
Will Smith, who wanted a $20 million payday for a live-action Dumbo, directed by Tim Burton. Disney balked, and Smith instead collected his $20 million from Netflix to star in Bright. Few argue with the wisdom of that move.
Tim Burton is helming the movie about the baby circus elephant and is yet to announce its premiere date.
So, what do you think?
