News On The Aladdin Remake

According to The Sun, director Guy Ritchie wants Tom Hardy to play Jafar in the upcoming live-action remake of Disney’s Aladdin. The two have worked together before, back in the hugely underrated 2008 crime comedy RocknRolla, so they do have history and that can definitely help make this a reality. 

From what we understand, the pair have had conversations about the project but at this point, nothing’s set in stone. Hardy’s the director’s first choice though, and he’s hoping to bring the actor on board should scheduling work out.

The only cast member attached to Aladdin is Will Smith, who’s set for the role of the Genie. Now that he’s involved though, it’s easy to imagine that the studio will be able to attract an A-list roster of talent to join him whether that will include Hardy or not remains to be seen.

The screenplay for the project comes from John August.
