Jane Goldman (Kick -Ass) is in talks with Warner Bros. with a view to writing the script for their forthcoming live action adaptation of the classic children’s tale Pinocchio. An initial draft has already been created by Bryan Fuller (Pushing Daisies) and according to THR the studio are eyeing Tim Burton (Edward Scissorhands) to direct the new film and are also looking to land Robert Downey Jr (Iron Man) as Pinocchio’s master Geppetto.
Pinocchio was originally written by Italian Carlo Collodi and centres around a woodcarver called Geppetto, who creates a puppet that becomes a real boy and whose nose grows whenever he tells a lie. When Pinocchio goes missing, Geppetto embarks on a quest to reunite with his creation. The story has been most famously told in the 1940 animated Disney classic.
