We already know that Will Smith is going to be playing the Genie in the live-action remake of Aladdin, but who is going to play Aladdin and Jasmine?!
Director, Guy Ritchie, is struggling to find lead actors for their live-action Aladdin remake… Mainly Aladdin himself!
The Hollywood Reporter, has said that more than 2,000 actors and actresses have already auditioned for the roles of Aladdin and Jasmine. The studio is looking for an actor of Middle-Eastern or Indian descent in his 20s who can sing and dance, which is more “difficult” than they originally thought!
As for Jasmine nothing has been confirmed, but there are two actresses are apparently in the running to play Jasmine; Naomi Scott and Tara Sutaria!
Guy Ritchie is supposed to start shooting the movie in August, but time is running out to find an actor to play Aladdin.
Hopefully they find someone perfect for the role fast!!!
