The Hollywood Reporter brings today’s movie news mad-libs by reporting that Guy Ritchie, famous for his London-set gangster films, will direct the live-action version of Aladdin for The Walt Disney Studios. John August has penned the script for the film, which will reportedly keep the musical elements of the 1992 film. In addition, THR notes that Ritchie will approach the film with a non-linear presentation. Dan Lin (Sherlock Holmes, The LEGO Movie) will produce the film under his Lin Pictures banner

I don't know how I feel about Disney's desires to remake their classic films. Like I understood Maleficent with putting an interesting spin on the classic story by telling it from the perspective of the "villain" (I still didn't like it all that much), but just redoing the animated movie in live action? Confused

Look, don't get me wrong, I LOVE Disney, but I just feel like it's sorta selling out. It's like there are no new ideas being generated in the company so they're just banking on nostalgia? I don't know.

I'll probably still watch them (I have yet to see the live action Cinderella), but I'm not sure how I will feel about them. Thoughts?

I'm not bothering, they're useless and feels like a quick buck now that the Frozen cash cow has died down.

I say this but if Mulan comes out badass I might reconsider Laughing
