Will Smith in conversation for a role as a Ghost in Aladdin
The makers of the remake of the Disney classic Aladdin try Will Smith to play the role of the Spirit. Sources tell Deadline that there are conversations going on.
Disney is at a rapid pace trying to of almost all of his tekenfilmklassiekers a liveaction remake. So far, with success: The Jungle Book and Beauty And The Beast were big hits. In addition to Aladdin, there are also new versions of The Lion King, Mulan and Dumbo.
Smith was previously linked to Dumbo, but negotiations about it yielded nothing. In the original Aladdin’s Spirit was played by Robin Williams. The Dutch voice was done by Pierre Bokma.
