Will Smith has had a change of heart and decided to step away from a major movie role.
Details on his shocking decision below…
Smith was in talks to play in Tim Burton‘s live-action remake of ‘Dumbo’.
In it, he was to portray the father of the family who bonds with the big-eared elephant. However, due to concerns surrounding salary and scheduling concerns, he has decided to step away from the release leaving the role open for another actor to fill.
The actor was said to be Disney’s top choice to star in the family film that is based on the 1941 animation about a big-eared circus elephant. Should he have signed on, Smith would’ve played a key role as the father of children who form a bond with Dumbo. Tom Hanks was also offered a role as the film’s villain.
