And yet you sit through four seasons of 'Once Upon a Time'... Happy as a clam.

I don't understand why everyone hates him.

In all fairness, I enjoy Tim Burton's movies. Yes, even Alice in Wonderland and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. Really, what do people have against the latter when it's probably more faithful to the original book than Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory was? :eyebrow:

However, I'm not even sure how a live-action Dumbo will work, especially since 99% of the focus is on animals.

And I just found out that one of the Transformers writers wrote the first draft. Yeah, this probably won't be very good...

well, I do like Burton and his style, but Im feeling about this the way i felt about him doing Planet of the Apes, the story material doesnt seem like the right fit for his style... with the exception of the circus theme(a circus theme stop motion Burton film would actually be pretty cool!) As live action though? I cant see it.

I think Burton would have been a better choice for a Pinocchio redo.

This coming from someone who just adores the Tinker Bell series--your pedestal doesn't even lift off the ground far enough for you to look down at anyone. :lol: Don't be so ridiculously bitter and childish to think that a campy TV series was ever meant to compare to a feature film. You can save the pity me comeback pretending to be a victim as if what you posted above wasn't meant as a snotty personal insult. Give and receive.

Tim Burton and a Transformers writer on a live-action Dumbo film... :?

Well, I guess my opinion of you matches your opinion of me. Touché!

Ehren Kruger has worked on another remake: 'The Ring', which was really awesome.

After seeing Cinderella, I actually don't think these movies are necessarily live-action remakes of the animated films. Kenneth Branagh was allowed to do his own take of the fairy tale with little nods to the animated film sprinkled throughout (including character names). I don't think Branagh would have signed on to direct the movie if Disney just wanted him to do a recreation of the animated feature. The same probably applies to Jon Favreau and Tim Burton. I think Disney views these as more like companion pieces, rather than just wanting to redo the animated films in live-action form.

I think Cinderella is more than the animated film than you think. Cinderella is blonde in blue dresses and is kind to all, including the animals, and especially mice and bluebirds. She lives in the garret tower of the house. The stepfamily rips her pink dress. Her fairy godmother is old and hooded for a few minutes. Her stepmother can tell she was the one the prince danced with at the ball and locks her in the tower so she can't try on the slipper. Et cetera et cetera...

Sigh.

Quote:
EXCLUSIVE: Disney is circling with Will Smith to star for director Tim Burton in Dumbo, the live-action adaptation of the classic 1941 animated film. The studio is moving aggressively toward a production start with a script by Ehren Kruger about the big-eared, lovable elephant. This is an intriguing family film option for Smith, who is also working toward a start date with Sony Pictures on Bad Boys For Life, a reteam with Martin Lawrence which has Joe Carnahan directing his script.

Tom Hanks may be playing the villain.

Smith would play the father of the children who develop a friendship with the lovable elephant after seeing him at the circus. Insiders also indicate that Tom Hanks has been offered a role as the villain.

Well, then those are well-casted then. So, will this be a extreme makeover like Pete's Dragon?

since when does Dumbo have a villain.

this is starting to sound like those lame 90s films that were like "overworked dad doesn't have time to hang with his kids so he goes on a whimsical adventure to be a better man"

I think Will Smith and the kids are going to replace the crows' role in the story. I find the crows rather inoffensive myself, but it's hard to see why Disney would want to avoid using them.

And at least this is trying to do its own spin on Dumbo, rather than an almost copy of the animated film like The Jungle Book and presumably Beauty and the Beast. It's better to give Tim Burton room to do what he wants and let his creative juices flow rather than restrict him, because otherwise, you get something like Planet of the Apes.

Eva Green is in negotiations to star on Dumbo.

I like Eva Green so that makes me a little bit more receptive to this film. Burton's been using her in his latest projects so her casting isn't really that much of a surprise.

I don't know what you would think about this but according to BroadwayWorld, Danny Devito is in talks to play a role in the movie.

Danny DeVito is negotiating to join Tim Burton’s circus in Disney’s live-action rendering of Dumbo which is casting up now. DeVito is trying to work out schedules on his Broadway turn to join Eva Green in the story of the beloved baby circus elephant with the big, floppy ears.

If things work out, DeVito would play Medici, the man who runs a smaller circus that gets acquired by the evil big top circus villain Vandemere. Others involved in the picture say that DeVito’s deal is pretty much closed.

The live-action adaptation of the 1941 animated classic, scripted by Ehren Kruger who produces with Justin Springer, is barreling towards a production start. Eva Green is already in talks to take on the role Colette, a French trapeze artist who works for Vandemere and is a key role in the film.

Wait, what? Why? What is it, this suppose to represent how the old time moderate republicans are getting swallowed up by the new business politicians that are around these days?

Plus, since when has Dumbo involved corporate takeovers?

and to the part of evil big top circus villain, I just couldn't stop doing this. rotfl rotfl
