Surprising but, at the same time, not surprising. Disney is planning a live action take on Dumbo to be penned by Transformers: Age Of Extinction writer Ehren Kruger (to be fair, he was under some non-narrative marching orders on that one). Oblivion producer Justin Springer will co-produce alongside Kruger.
If you’re like me and it’s been decades since you’ve seen the original Dumbo, you may not have easily recalled that this elephant can fly. He can. No matter, Disney is said to be confident that modern CGI can take care of such things. I’m sure it can, but doesn’t a live action flying elephant seem like an aesthetic nightmare come to life? Hit the jump for more on the new Dumbo remake.
