Cape Town – In case you missed it Disney has been on a mission in making live-action versions of their popular classics. 

Earlier this year it was revealed that Aladdin was also added to the list of slated movies. 

According to the Hollywood Reporter Guy Ritchie is in talks to helm the film. 

The script was written by John August and sources have revealed that it will contain the musical elements of the original. 

The 1992 box office hit in which Robin Williams voiced the genie won two Academy Awards. 

We reported earlier that the studio was planning an Aladdin prequel, Genies, which would focus on the backstory of the famous blue genie.

Although William's will forbid Disney from using his name, taped performances or voice recordings they are going ahead with the project which is said to be in the early stages of development.
