When Tim Burton set out to make his live-action version of Dumbo, he decided to make it a reunion of sorts. He brought in Michael Keaton, who he hadn’t worked with in nearly three decades. He also brought in Alan Arkin (Edward Scissorhands), Eva Green (Dark Shadows), and another old favorite of his, Danny DeVito. Burton told us he found a particularly inspiring reason to have DeVito cast in the movie. (Click on the media bar below to hear Tim Burton)
Dumbo opens in theaters next Friday.
