Deadline confirms Joseph Gatt (Z Nation) has been cast in the live-action adaptation of Dumbo by Tim Burton. He’s joining Colin Farrell, Eva Green, Danny DeVito, Michael Keaton, DeObia Oparei, Nico Parker and Finley Hobbins.

You can read the film’s synopsis below:

Gatt will play a character named Skellig in a story that follows Holt (Farrell), a former circus star who finds his life turned upside down when he returns from the war. Circus owner Max Medici (DeVito) enlists him to care for a newborn elephant whose oversize ears make him a laughingstock in an already struggling circus. But when Holt’s children discover that Dumbo can fly, persuasive entrepreneur V.A. Vandevere (Keaton) and aerial artist Colette Marchant (Green) swoop in to make the peculiar pachyderm a star.
