Bryce Dallas Howard in Talks for Disney’s ‘Pete’s Dragon’ Reboot (Exclusive)

20 November 2014 3:34 PM, PST | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Bryce Dallas Howard is in early talks to play the female lead in Disney’s “Pete’s Dragon” reboot.

Robert Redford is also in talks to star with Oakes Fegley playing the title character.

David Lowery is set to direct from a script he wrote with Toby Halbrooks.

The story is a reinvention of the 1977 film that revolves around Pete and his best friend Elliot, who happens to be dragon. The first pic was a musical, but sources say this will be a straight narrative. The movie will be live-action with CGI used to bring the dragon to life.

Jim Whitaker is producing.

Howard, who is repped by ICM Partners and Management 360, can be seen next in “Jurassic World.” Other past credits include “The Help,” “Hereafter” and “50/50.”

One of the Live-Action Jungle Book Movies Just Added Idris Elba

7 March 2014 9:40 AM, PST | LatinoReview | See recent LatinoReview news »

Which Jungle Book movie though?

I don’t know how I ended up drawing the repeated coverage of Disney and Warner Bros competing live-action Jungle Book movies, but here I am again. As I wrote before on the Warner Bros Jungle Book:

Callie Cloves, the daughter of Steve Cloves, who sounds familiar because he adapted all theHarry Potter movies from the books, wrote a live-action screenplay based on Rudyard Kipling’s The Jungle Book (the source text that produced the Disney film).

Cloves’ script is at Warner Bros where last month it lost it’s director (Babel‘s Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu left the project).

We thought maybe Ron Howard was going to step in and save the WB incarnation, but that hasn’t happened yet. Meanwhile, Disney and it’s Jon Favreau-directed, David Lowery-written (that was the team that worked on the first Iron Man) Jungle Book »
