Talks between Will Smith and Disney have broken off and he will not be starring in Dumbo, the Tim Burton-directed live action adaptation of the classic 1941 animated film. The studio continues to move aggressively toward a production start with a script by Ehren Kruger about the big-eared, lovable elephant.
