The latest cast news regarding Tim Burton’s upcoming live-action remake of Dumbo is that Colin Farrell is in negotiations to join the project. As Deadline reports, Farrell would play Holt, a widowed father of two. Notably, Farrell previously played the father of author P.L. Travers in Disney’s Saving Mr. Banks.
After a deal with star Will Smith fell through earlier this year, the Dumbo project has recently cast Eva Green and Danny DeVito. Currently there is no release date for the film.
