Disney pressing ahead with live action Dumbo movie

The writer of the last three Transformers films is penning a live action take on Dumbo for Disney...

Maleficent has proven to be a roaring success for Disney, as it continues to turn classic fairy tales and animated movies into live action projects. The studio continues to strike gold too, with Maleficent following the hugely successful Alice In Wonderland and Oz: The Great And Powerful.

Disney already has live action movies of Cinderella, The Jungle Book and Beauty And The Beast in development. But it looks like it's now added Dumbo to its slate.

The Wrap reports that a live action Dumbo is set to be penned by Ehren Kruger for the studio. Kruger has previously penned Scream 3, Arlington Road and the last three Transformers movies.

Kruger will also produce, alongside Justin Springer. There's no word on a director or timescales yet.
