Tim Burton Slated to Direct Disney's New Live-Action 'Dumbo'

And he's back! Disney has officially announced that Tim Burton will be the director handling their upcoming live-action "Dumbo" movie. Ehren Kruger, the screenwriter behind the last three “Transformers” movies, has penned the script, and Disney has moved forward with pre-production, where Kruger will produce the film alongside "Tron: Legacy" producer Justin Springer.

After the success of "Alice" and "Maleficent", Disney has begun reworking many of their animated classics into live-action feature films. Of course, "Cinderella" was released this week, and "Beauty & The Beast" has been working to cast their leads, which currently includes Emma Watson and Downton Abbey's Dan Stevens.

What do you guys think about Tim Burton handling "Dumbo"?
