We are hearing that Smith is circling one of the lead roles in their upcoming live-action remake of Aladdin , which is being directed by Guy Ritchie (no, seriously). According to Deadline, Will Smith is in early talks to play the genie role in Disney’s upcoming live-action Aladdin project.

Disney are going full steam ahead with their plans for a live action Aladdin remake and they' re going big for the Genie . According to Deadline, the studio is in negotiations with Will Smith to take on the role made famous by Robin Williams in the 1992 original.

The role was originally played by Robin Williams in the 1992 Disney animated film, which turns 25 this year.

The reboot will be directed by Guy Ritchie, and is expected to start shooting in the UK from July until early next year. There is no release date yet. Aladdin is among the growing list of Disney classics getting the live-action treatment, including Mulan, The Little Mermaid, The Lion King and Dumbo. If they turn out anything like the recently-released Beauty and the Beast remake, which has earned over $1 billion worldwide, expect them to be blockbusters.

Smith was actually in talks to join the Dumbo remake as well, which will be directed by Tim Burton, but that "did not materialize," according to Deadline. However, his music background makes him a great fit for Aladdin, which will be an onscreen musical. At this point, there is no news yet on who will play Aladdin or Jasmine, but if Smith signs on, we can look forward to a great cast.
