Danny DeVito is in talks to join the live-action movie of Dumbo!

Danny DeVito may be heading to the Big Top.

The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed that the actor is in talks to join Disney’s live-action retelling of Dumbo. Tim Burton is directing the remake of the 1941 animated classic about a baby circus elephant who is made fun of for his large ears and is separated from his mother.

Though plot details are being kept under wraps, the retelling is said to expand and deepen the circus aspect of the story. For example, DeVito would play Medici, who runs a smaller circus that gets acquired by the evil big-top villain Vandemere.
