Ron Howard Set to Direct Robert Downey Jr. in 'Pinocchio'

18 February 2016 1:30 PM, PST | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

It's been more than 15 years since filmmaker Ron Howard made a movie that was specifically targeted at a family audience, namely, How the Grinch Stole Christmas. He won two Academy Awards right after that for the terrific drama A Beautiful Mind and since then has concentrated on fare that's more appealing to somewhat older audiences, like The Dilemma, Rush and In the Heart of the Sea. Howard is now sailing back toward a family-friendly adventure. He is attached to direct a new live-action Pinocchio, according to Tracking Board.

Howard Replaces Anderson On "Pinocchio"?

18 February 2016 6:32 AM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Filmmaker Ron Howard has become attached to direct the new family-oriented live-action "Pinocchio" movie currently in the works at Warner Bros. Pictures.

Robert Downey Je. is attached to star in the role of Geppetto in this new take on the classic Carlo Collodi book. Jane Goldman, Michael Mitnick and Bryan Fuller all took previous shots at the script which follows Geppetto as he sets out to find Pinocchio when he goes missing.

The tone of the new film is said to be in the vein of "Alice in Wonderland," "Maleficent" and the upcoming "The Jungle Book" which take existing properties and tweak the narrative.

Howard replaces Paul Thomas Anderson who was previously attached to write and direct. That filmmaker stepped away from the film last Fall. Howard, Downey Jr., Brian Grazer, Dan Jinks and Susan Downey will produce.
