Will Smith Reportedly in Early Talks to Play the Genie in “Aladdin”

Even though plans to have Will Smith join Tim Burton’s Dumbo fell through, it seems he may appear in a Disney live-action remake yet. Today, Deadline reports that the star is in talks to play the legendary role of the Genie in the Guy Ritchie-directed Aladdin. However, Deadline does stress that talks are apparently still early and, as we’ve seen before, things can always change.

So what do you think of Smith potentially taking on the role that the late Robin Williams made so famous? Let us know!
