Director Tim Burton has been busy casting for his live-action version of the classic Disney animation Dumbo with Michael Keaton now reportedly in talks to play the villain.

Keaton has a long history with Burton having worked with him on Batman and Beetlejuice but the two haven’t collaborated since the 1992 film Batman Returns.

If Keaton does agree upon a deal then he will play the Vandemere, a villain who wants to exploit the beloved Dumbo.

Eva Green and Danny DeVito will star in the movie which is set to start filming later this year.
