Tim Burton is making a live-action Dumbo movie. Johnny Depp is in talks to play Dumbo's Mom.
Burton will bring the 1941 Disney animated film to life and, according to THR, Ehren Kruger (Transformers) will write the script. The movie will be a blend of nightmares and CG and live-action. And it will probably have stripe and whirly gigs and music that goes bump-ba-bum-ba-bum. So that's happening.
