The cast for the live-action Dumbo movie keeps getting bigger and better as Z Nation actor Joseph Gatt joins the film. Gatt will be working with Colin Farrell (Fantastic Beast and Where To Find Them), Eva Green (Casino Royale), Michael Keaton (Spider-Man: Homecoming), Danny DeVito (It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia), DeObia Oparei (Game of Thrones), Nico Parker and Finley Hobbins.
Deadline broke the news and reported on what Gatt’s role for the film will be, stating:
Gatt will play a character named Skellig in a story that follows Holt (Farrell), a former circus star who finds his life turned upside down when he returns from the war. Circus owner Max Medici (DeVito) enlists him to care for a newborn elephant whose oversize ears make him a laughingstock in an already struggling circus. But when Holt’s children discover that Dumbo can fly, persuasive entrepreneur V.A. Vandevere (Keaton) and aerial artist Colette Marchant (Green) swoop in to make the peculiar pachyderm a star.
The live-action adaptation of the Disney’s 1941 animated classic will be directed by Tim Burton and produced by Derek Frey (Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children), Ehren Kruger (Ophelia) and Justin Springer (Tron: Legacy). The film is set to release in theaters March 29, 2019.
