Colin Farrell is reportedly in talks to join the live-action Disney remake of Dumbo.

According to Deadline, the actor is tipped to play the role of Holt, the widowed father of two kids of Kentucky.

If a deal is made, Farrell will join Eva Green and Danny Devito in the project. Tom Hanks is also said to be in talks to play the main villain.

Tim Burton signed up to direct the project two years ago and will be joined by Transformers screenwriter Ehren Kruger.

We've yet to get a release date for Dumbo, and with filming not yet started, we'll probably be waiting another while.
