Transformers Scribe Taking on Live-Action Dumbo Movie
Posted by Jeremy Thomas on 07.08.2014

Disney has turned to the the primary writer of the Transformers franchise to script their upcoming live-action Dumbo adaptation. The Wrap reports that the studio has tapped Ehren Kruger, who co-wrote Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen and was the sole writer for Transformers: Dark of the Moon and Transformers: Age of Extinction, to adapt their beloved cartoon into a live-action film.

The studio has been on quite the live-action adaptation kick as of late; following the success of Alice in Wonderland they put out Maleficent this year which has a $600 million-plus worldwide gross. A live-action Cinderella take is set to release next year with Jon Favreau (Iron Man) at work on a Jungle Book take.

The Dumbo movie will follow along the lines of the 1941 animated film and will use CGI for a realistic recreation of the titular elephant as he goes on an an adventure with a mouse after his mother is locked up after defending him.
