Tom Hardy has moved quickly to quash reports that he is set to play Jafar in Guy Ritchie’s live-action remake of Disney’s Aladdin.
There had been rumours that the 39-year-old actor would be taking the role, stirring accusations of whitewashing on social media.
The Sun was the first to report that Hardy was Ritchie’s “first choice” and had held “conversations” about the role, despite producer Dan Lin’s promise to “make a movie that’s authentic to that world”.
Will Smith is apparently being lined up to play the Genie, but apart from that the project is firmly under wraps.
