Guy Ritchie to Direct Live-Action Aladdin for Disney


The Hollywood Reporter brings today’s movie news mad-libs by reporting that Guy Ritchie, famous for his London-set gangster films, will direct the live-action version of Aladdin for The Walt Disney Studios. John August has penned the script for the film, which will reportedly keep the musical elements of the 1992 film. In addition, THR notes that Ritchie will approach the film with a non-linear presentation. Dan Lin (Sherlock Holmes, The LEGO Movie) will produce the film under his Lin Pictures banner.
 
LOL! :hilarious: Thankfully this isn't being directed by Tim Burton, he'd probably use Helena Bonham Carter :p

But I would LOVE to see Freida Pinto as Jasmine :drool:

:hungry:
Pinto = PERFECT casting! But with her, I think it would be really hard to find the perfect Aladdin... Is Kumar available? :D

And yeah, if directly by Burton, you could have bet your 1st born that Depp would have been the Genie..... ish..... :p


But seriously, Ritchie to direct one of my all-time favorite Disney movie???? Hum... Sherlock Holmes movies were "ok"... curious to see what his take on King Arthur will be... but for the rest, I just don't know the guy...

The Walt Disney Studios took to the stage at D23 Expo this weekend and surprised the world with the official announcement of the two leads for their live-action Aladdin movie. Mena Massoud (The 99, Jack Ryan) will play the titular street thief, with Naomi Scott (Power Rangers) set to play Jasmine. The studio also confirmed that Will Smith will play the role of the Genie in the film and that it will not only borrow plot elements from the original animated movie but also its basis, 1,001 Arabian Nights.

My first reaction to Will Smith being Genie was "HELL NO!"
The I gave it a second and realized nobody can touch Robin Willams' version. Nobody. So at least Smith's version will be different enough and could probably work.

I'll give it a chance.

Still can't believe Ritchie is directing Aladdin and smith is the genie


That guy proper looks like how I image a live action Aladdin to look though

I hope it's not the physical form of smith as the genie and it's a CGI character with just his voice, I can handle that. I'm even hoping he's blue

Yeah. I would assume MoCap. And he would be CGI.

...or else he'll look straight up like Kazaam! lol
