Alan Arkin cast in Dumbo movie

August 21st, 2017 by bash Comments

Alan Arkin has joined the cast of Dumbo.

The live-action film is being directed by Tim Burton with production having started a month ago.

The Argo actor joins a cast containing Colin Farrell, Eva Green, Danny DeVito and Michael Keaton. He’ll play a Wall Street tycoon named J. Griffin Remington but little else is known about his character.

The film sees Holt Farrier (Farrell) and his children bond with the special elephant. Farrier was once a star in the circus, but after he returns home from the war, circus owner Max Medici (DeVito) gives him the task of watching over the ridiculed Dumbo.

After it becomes known Dumbo has the power of flight, the kind-hearted animal catches the attention of the villainous V.A. Vandevere (Keaton). The entrepreneur and an aerial artist, Colette Marchant (Green), want to take Dumbo and turn him into a star.

Dumbo hits cinemas on 29 March 2019.

Hi all. I'm Bash and love anything and everything to do with Star Wars. Although I've watched hundreds of movies, read dozens of books and played numerous computer games from other genres and franchises since, nothing has come close to seeing George Lucas' epic for the very first time. I hope you all like the site and come back often.
