Suicide Squad Actor Will Smith is currently negotiating playing the role of a Genie in the live action remake of Aladdin. This information comes courtesy of  The Guardian. Aladdin will start production this summer in the United Kingdom and the talks held by the film’s director Guy Richie (King Arthur: Legend Of The Sword) might be attempts to round up the film’s cast before heading into production.



Will Smith’s repertoire as a comedian in addition to his range is a good reason why he is considered for this role and whether he’ll agree to play the character is still unknown. Following the success of Beauty and the beast, Disney plans to make other live actions of their classical cartoon movies like Mulan, PeterPan and Dumbo.
