Ehren Kruger, the screenwriter responsible for most of the Transformers movies, is taking the next logical step in his career: penning a live-action Dumbo remake.
According to THR, Disney have tapped Kruger and Tron: Legacy producer Justin Springer to adapt their 1941 flying-elephant classic into, presumably, an explosive sci-fi extravaganza. (That last bit we’re just supposing.)
Seeing as the original Dumbo is only 64 minutes long, this new remake will include a parallel story about a “unique family.”
It’s not the first live-action Disney adaptation have on the cards: Cinderella, The Jungle Book and Beauty and the Beast are all in the works.
For these we can thank the success of Maleficent, based on Sleeping Beauty, and Alice in Wonderland.
So, prepare to see that trippy dream sequence come to life in what will likely be even more terrifying fashion.
