Live-action classic fairy tales are becoming a very popular thing in Hollywood since Tim Burton busted out Alice in Wonderland. Warner Bros. Pictures is now developing a live-action Pinocchio film project being produced by Dan Jinks (American Beauty, Big Fish). They also hired a screenwriter Bryan Fuller to write the script, he worked on TV series such as Dead Like Me and Pushing Daisies.
This film has a solid creative team behind it so far, so there a good chance this could actually end up being a decent film.
Jinks said that he was inspired by Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland to begin work on a new version of Pinocchio. "I think we've found a fresh approach that's going to be very entertaining."
The story originated in Italian author Carlo Collodi's novel The Adventures of Pinocchio. The first half was originally a serial between 1881 and 1883, and then later completed as a book for children in February 1883.
The tale has been adapted several times for film over the years, but Disney's 1940 insanely creepy animated film is definitely the best known version.
