More potential casting news regarding Tim Burton’s upcoming Dumbo remake: Deadline is reporting that Danny DeVito is being considered for a role. However, there is a hitch in that DeVito is juggling many other projects and would need to ensure scheduling works out in order for him to accept. The actor would play the role of Medici, who runs a smaller circus that gets acquired by Vandemere.
Earlier this week it was reported that Eva Green was in talks to join the cast of Dumbo as well. She will apparently play Colette, the French trapeze artist.
