GAME OF THRONES Writer Vanessa Taylor To Rewrite Guy Ritchie's Live-Action ALADDIN

Hot off the heels of announcing that they have found their Aladdin and Jasmine, Disney has hired Vanessa Taylor who will be doing a rewrite on the company's newest live action adaptation.

Disney is looking to spruce up its live-action Aladdin remake by tapping former Game of Thrones scribe, Vanessa Taylor, to rewrite the script according to The Tracking Board.

Taylor will be working off of a John August draft that he wrote with director Guy Ritchie. August is still producing the picture with Dan Lin, which will begin production in London next month. Also on the producing team is Executive Producer Jonathan Eirich, with Marc Platt and Chris Montan consulting.

Ritchie recently found his lead roles of Aladdin and Jasmine by casting Mena Massoud and Naomi Scott, respectively. Joining the two leads is Will Smith, who will play the iconic Genie.
