A fairy tale redo and a videogame movie just got some new writers. That's Hollywood these days folks so let's get into it.. Warner Bros has hired “Kick-Ass” and “X-Men: First Class” screenwriter Jane Goldman to rewrite the live-action take on “Pinocchio” that Tim Burton and Robert Downey Jr. have been circling since the beginning of the year. Goldman is taking over scripting duties -- and “incorporating Downey’s notes” -- from “Wonderfalls” and “Pushing Daisies” creator Bryan Fuller who wrote the first draft. Should it all come together -- Burton and Rdj aren't officially committed yet -- it will follow Geppetto as he goes on a journey to find Pinochhio after he goes missing. He'll probably encounter lots of wacky things along the way. Hopefully the end result is more “Frankenweenie” and less “Alice In Wonderland.” Despite the “Resident Evil” »
