The SURPRISING Actor Set To Play Aladdin’s Genie In Remake

Did you know there’s a remake of Disney classic Aladdin the works?

Well technically speaking I don’t know if it’s actually started production yet, but what I do know is that they’ve found the actor they want to star in the role Robin Williams’ made famous; the wise-cracking genie.

Guy Ritchie is directing the flick, and is on the hunt for his three main characters.

Will Smith is apparently in talks to take on the role of the ‘Genie’ in the flick, according to the Hollywood Reporter.

Will Smith was previously linked to Dumbo, which Tim Burton is helming, but nothing came of it due to the star's other commitments.

With Bad Boys 3 off the cards it looks like Smith is now open to the Aladdin role.

Dan Lin, a producer on the live-action remake says it it will an ambitious "non-traditional" take on Aladdin.

There are no other big names linked to the movie yet, as Ritchie continues the hunt of this Jasmine And Aladdin. The big plus? It looks as though they're doing open call outs to find the right fit.

Who do you think would play the parts well?
