    Default Dumbo (2019: Disney, Tim Burton, live action)

    Director: Tim Burton

    Holt: Colin Farrell
    Max Medici: Danny DeVito
    V.A. Vandevere: Michael Keaton
    Colette Marchant: Eva Green
    Unnamed tycoon: Alan Arkin

    Holt is a former circus performer whose life is turned upside down after he returns home from the war. Holt teams up with circus owner Max Medici to care for a newborn elephant, whose giant ears have already made him a laughing stock.

    However, Dumbo and Holt's fates quickly change when the elephant reveals he can fly, leading businessman V.A. Vandevere and his partner Colette Marchant to swoop in and try and make him a star. Arkin as a Wall Street tycoon.

    No Johnny Depp in a Tim Burton movie?!

    But seriously: it seems to have the right atmosphere... Could be good!

    Depp's a train wreck; busted, drugged/drunk and in his most recent pics he looks horrible.

    Yes, I've also seen it...

    Still, the Dumbo seems like a story that can be told very nicely in Tim Burton's style...
