Michael C. Hall Joins Disney’s ‘Pete’s Dragon’ Remake (EXCLUSIVE)

Michael C. Hall is set to join the cast of Disney’s remake of “Pete’s Dragon.”

Robert Redford, Bryce Dallas Howard and Wes Bentley are also on board, with newcomer Oakes Fegley set as the title character.

David Lowery will direct from a script he wrote with Toby Halbrooks.

The story is a reinvention of the 1977 film that revolves around Pete and his best friend Elliot, who happens to be a dragon. The first pic was a musical, but sources say this will be a straight narrative. The movie will be live action, with CGI used to bring the dragon to life.

Jim Whitaker is producing.

Hall was last seen in the Sundance pic “Cold in July.” He is repped by UTA and Hamilton Hodell.
