Aw hell no...

They should have Sinbad play Genie in Aladdin. That way all those reports about Sinbad in that FAKE genie movie would be retroactively true, somewhat.

Will Smith is almost 50 years old (he's 48 now), isn't he a little too old for this role? Genie was also rather, "big" and kind of "fat," in his chest area, Will Smith is far too thin.

Genie will likely be augmented with CG, he typed thinking that was a foregone conclusion.

Genie would be CGI won't he, so Will Smith will just be voice acting.

Wouldn't they still use Will Smith's face? They could only need to CG his magic/floating scenes.

Alan Menken says the movie will begin filming begins this August:

Can you give us any teasers of what to expect with Aladdin?

Itís a very fluid process. Guy Ritchie is directing and heís never directed a musical before so itís going to be a lot of attempts to reinvent the wheel. Where itís re-inventable, we will do it and where itís not, we will discover that together. But it has to be a very fast discovery process because at this point shooting is supposed to start in August.

Reports are saying that Jade Thirlwall of Little Mix has been cast as Jasmine.

Also, I'm not going to believe it right now because a tabloid known as The Sun originally reported it, but there's a rumor that Tom Hardy is being eyed to play Jafar.

Why is Guy Ritchie directing a live action Aladdin? Who's doing the Little Mermaid? Nicolas Winding Refn?!
