Will Smith To Play Genie In Live Action Aladdin Remake?

It's hard to imagine anyone but Robin Williams playing iconic Aladdin character The Genie, right?

Well, there is a new live-action remake of the movie in the works and it looks we MIGHT know who is filling those shoes!

The new movie is said will be directed by Guy Ritchie (known for Snatch and other classics), but so far none of the cast has been officially locked in yet.

HOWEVER, the big rumor is that Philly's own Will Smith could be turning blue! 

Yup...The Hollywood Reporter is saying that Smith is part of the discussion of who will play Genie in the new movie. 

Of course nothing is set yet, but this could definitely be an interesting choice! While he would definitely play it differently than Williams, I could totally see this being a thing. Thoughts?
