Multiple reports say Will Smith is in early talks to play "Genie" in a live-action Aladdin movie.

Withs success of Disney cartoons turned live-action films, such as Beauty and the Beast, the studio is bound to roll out more remakes of their classic films.

Smith is pegged to voice the over-the-top "Genie"  in the live-action film. smith is more than capable of doing a great job but it'll be hard to top the late-Robin Williams portrayal of the character.
