Veteran actor Danny DeVito could be the latest star to join the live-action rendering of Disney's classic Dumbo story, about an adorable baby circus elephant with big, floppy ears.

According to Deadline, DeVito is trying to work out schedules on his Broadway turn to join Eva Green in the film, which is currently in the midst of casting, and is to be helmed by director Tim Burton.

While Green is already in talks to play Colette, a French trapeze artist in the circus, DeVito is tipped to play Medici, the man who runs a smaller circus that gets acquired by the evil big top circus villain Vandemere.

The live-action adaptation of the 1941 animated classic has been penned by Ehren Kruger who produces with Justin Springer.
