Chiwetel Ejiofor, who was nominated for an Oscar for his leading role in 12 Years a Slave, is in talks to voice the character of Scar, the traitorous villain in Disney’s live-action reimagining of its classic, The Lion King, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed.

Jon Favreau, who directed the live-action remake of The Jungle Book, is also sitting behind the camera for Lion King, which already boasts a stellar voice cast of Donald Glover as Simba, the young lion who would be king, and James Earl Jones as his father, Mufasa (Jones also voiced the character in the 1994 original).
