HERE FOR IT OR NAH?: Will Smith Reportedly in Talks with Disney to Play the Genie in Live Action “Aladdin” Movie!

“Now this is a story all about how/My life got flipped turned upside down.” Or at least it could be.

Deadline reports that Disney is in talks with Will Smith to be the genie in the live-action Aladdin project being directed by Guy Ritchie. If the deal happens, Smith would be following in the large, intimidating footsteps of Robin Williams, whose iconic portrayal of the blue-skinned genie made the character beloved for an entire generation.

With Cinderella and Beauty and the Beast already profitable ventures, Disney’s plans to remake many of its modern animated hits into live-action affairs are well underway. A big name like Smith’s could make Aladdin even more successful. Are you here for seeing Smith take on the role?
