Donald Glover has another major project under his belt.
The Atlanta star will star in the live action version of The Lion King as Simba, alongside the legendary James Earl Jones who will play Mustafa. The film is being directed by Jon Favreau, who did Jungle Book and Iron Man.
As reported The Hollywood Reporter, Favreau first met Glover at The Hollywood Reporter’s Conversation on Creativity event in December, where Favreau told Glover his son is a fan of the star’s music, which he performs under the name Childish Gambino.
“By the way, full disclosure: I see your face every day when I wake up my 15-year-old son because on his door is a portrait of you,” Favreau told the actor-musician.
In addition to this new project, Glover is set to star in Star Wars: A Rogue One Story and signed a production deal with FX. His highly successful comedy show, Atlanta, will return in 2018.
