If finalised, the 46-year-old actor will be the voice of the streetwise mongrel Tramp and will be joining Ashley Jensen, who will provide vocals for the Scottish Terrier Jackie, in the project, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The studio had recently hired Charlie Bean, director of The Lego Ninjago Movie, to helm the live-action/CG hybrid remake from a script by Andrew Bujalski.

Brigham Taylor will produce the project, which will be available exclusively on Disneys own digital streaming service scheduled to be launched late next year.

The 1955 classic followed two dogs, an upper-middle-class American cocker spaniel named Lady and a a street smart, downtown stray mongrel called the Tramp, as they embark on many romantic adventures.

The film featured several popular songs, including 'Bella Notte', 'Hes a Tramp' and 'The Siamese Cat Song'.

Chaz Salembier and Jessica Virtue are overseeing the remake for Disney.

Theroux will next appear with Mila Kunis and Kate McKinnon in the upcoming comedy The Spy Who Dumped Me, which is scheduled for a release on 3 August.
