Will Smith Joins ‘Aladdin’ Remake

Published: Thursday 20th Apr 2017 by David

Will Smith is reportedly in talks to join the live action adaptation of Disney’s Aladdin!

Production on the Guy Ritchie-helmed project kicks off in the United Kingdom this summer and, should negotiations prove to be fruitful, will welcome Smith to the cast as Genie, once portrayed by the late Robin Williams.

Fans of the box office rocking Will will remember that the talks he entered with Disney to star in its forthcoming revival of Dumbo fell through after they allegedly refused to part ways with the $20 million he asked for.

The Guardian adds:

According to Sean Bailey, head of motion picture production at Disney, the film will be a “highly energized” musical. This year has already seen the studio celebrating global success for Beauty and the Beast, with the film earning over $1bn worldwide. As well as Dumbo and Aladdin, the studio also has plans to remake Mulan, Peter Pan, The Lion King, The Little Mermaid and Pocahontas.
