A surprise peiece of movie news has hit the web!!! Jon Favreau and Disney’s “live action” Lion King remake has found it’s Timon and Pumba with Billy Eichner (“Parks and Rec”) and Seth Rogen (“This Is The End”), personally I was championing for Key and Peele.
These are however, inspired casting choices, particularly Rogen who I can totally see fitting in well with the character of Pumba. Eichner I’m not a hundred percent sold on, but there’s no doubt his talent as a comedian.
In addtion to this news it was also announced that the film will have a release date of July 19, 2019. Currently the script is being rewrriten by “Catch Me If You Can” and “Pirates 5: Dead Men Tell No Tales” scribe Jeff Nathanson.
