Actors Ryan Gosling and Ezra Miller are also reportedly in the running for the Paul King-directed remake.
“While Glover might be the hottest name of the three on the list, he is the only one currently hard at work with other studios,” Comicbook.com reported.
In addition to FX’s “Atlanta,” Glover was recently in “Solo: A Star Wars Story” and will play Simba’s voice in the 2019 Disney live-action adaptation of “The Lion King.”
Miller currently stars in Warner Bros.’ “Fantastic Beasts” franchise and plays The Flash in the DC Comics movies.
Gosling also has ties to the studio with “Blade Runner 2049,” “Crazy, Stupid Love” and more.
