There’s some casting movement on the Disney, live-action ‘Dumbo‘ front. Tim Burton has been putting together a retelling of the elephant story for some time now and has a few actors already on the payroll for the project. Those include Eva Green (‘Miss Peregrine’s Home For Peculiar Children‘), Danny DeVito (‘It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia‘) and Colin Farrell (‘Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them‘).

by Gumbercules9000 on Mar 10th, 2015

Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

I’m not sure if this is quite the best news, but Tim Burton (‘Beetlejuice‘) will direct a live-action remake of ‘Dumbo‘ for Disney. If you’re unfamiliar with the story of ‘Dumbo‘, it follows a baby circus elephant who is bullied because of his giant ears, which give him special abilities. The original film came out in 1941.

When Tim Burton makes a new movie, it gets attention. Be it good, bad or ugly, people talk about it. The newest film to add to the cannon of Burton films is ‘Big Eyes‘. His latest live action film since 2012’s ‘Dark Shadows‘.  A drama centered on the awakening of the painter Margaret Keane, her extravagant success in the 1950’s and the following legal problems she had with her husband. Why did she have legal problems with her husband, you ask? He claimed credit for her paintings in the 1960’s. Talk about a maladjusted marriage! Makes Ike and Tina Turner look like a model of marriage perfection.

Jana B., Here….

When you think of the collected works of Tim Burton, certain projects stand out. If you ask my daughter, she’ll point out Alice in Wonderland, my son will give props to, his favorite, The Nightmare Before Christmas. If you ask me, I’ll mention the Batman movies, Edward Scissorhands or Beetlejuice. There has been a lot of talk about Burton, Michael Keaton and Beetlejuice lately. In particular, whether or not Burton would like to film a sequel. He is already a producer of the proposed movie with David Geffen. I don’t blame Warner Brothers for giving this one to Burton to consider. How could you make a trip back to the universe of Beetlejuice without his directing? It would be like eating steak with plastic wrapped around your tongue…all of the fill of food, but none of the flavor. Come to think about it, that’s kind of like sex with a condom, too!

Hi, Bryan Here….

In the year 1752, Joshua and Naomi Collins, with young son Barnabas, set sail from Liverpool, England to start a new life in America. But even an ocean was not enough to escape the mysterious curse that has plagued their family. Two decades pass and Barnabas (Johnny Depp) has the world at his feet—or at least the town of Collinsport, Maine. The master of Collinwood Manor, Barnabas is rich, powerful and an inveterate playboy…until he makes the grave mistake of breaking the heart of Angelique Bouchard (Eva Green). A witch, in every sense of the word, Angelique dooms him to a fate worse than death: turning him into a vampire, and then burying him alive.

Hi, Bryan Here….

So, before Tim Burton was all Tim Burton and loved scissors and crooked trees, he made a short film called ‘Frankenweenie’.  Now he is remaking his first film.  I have a love/hate relationship with Tim Burton, but I am curious to see this.  Very few directors go back to the original 1st movies and remake them.  But now the film has a poster and it looks eerily familiar.

Hi Bryan Here…..

‘Big Eyes’ tells the true tale of Margaret and Walter Keane, a couple whose famous and one of a kind paintings of wide-eyed children became a hugely successful in the pop art community in the fifties and sixties. There is a surprise revelation to the story though.  Walter  stood as the frontman for the whole venture, where he took credit for his wife’s work.

Hi Bryan Here….

Tim Burton is in talks to direct a live-action version of ‘Pinocchio’ movie which is currently being scripted by ‘Pushing Daisies’ creator, Bryan Fuller.  Warner Bros. is courting Robert Downey Jr. to star as Geppetto as well.  This is no surprise as Burton’s last film, ‘Alice in Wonderland’ was his biggest box office success.  Now it seems on the big screen as well as on television, there is an abundance of fantasy/fairy tale films in the works.  Heck there is a few Snow White films coming out and a few Pinocchio films coming out, and not too mention the many more fantasy/fairy tale films that have been slated for this year already.

Hi, Bryan Here…

We’ve been hearing for months now that Lindsay Lohan has been vying to play Elizabeth Taylor in ‘Liz and Dick’ for the Lifetime channel.  It’s he biopic chronicling the enduring love of movie icons Taylor and Richard Burton, whose fiery romance was the most notorious, publicized and celebrated love affair of its day.  Well today it became official.  I guess the execs don’t care about Lohan’s troubled past or they got a huge insurance policy on her.  Either way, I think they could have picked a better actress.  Press release below.
