Animated and Terry Gilliam godfathering the film.
11. Pinocchio (2021)

Animated and Guillermo Del Toro godfathering this one.
Adventure, Fantasy, Horror | Announced
A chilling recollection of an Antarctic expedition's uncanny discoveries and their encounter with untold menace in the ruins of a lost civilization.
Although I'm not a Del Toro fan, this -like Pinocchio- does sound very promising, IF he directs. Hopefully Pacific Rim is good and a success and Universal green lights this one and lets him do whatever he wants.
14. Ivan the Fool

James Franco has to really make nothing short of an amazing masterpiece classic with this. Although I wish Todd Field (In The Bedroom, Little Children) had this task.
20. Mr. Machine
Comedy | Delayed
Three oafish brainiacs build a robot that opts to take over the world.
Not sure what this is about, but it has David Gordon Green's name on it. Maybe this is his Tarkovskian-like space film that he's promised before. Besides, he needs to make a good movie already and get out of the Apatow camp.
21. Q (I)
Drama | Announced
An unlikely visitor tells a man not to marry the woman he loves.
Director: David Gordon Green
Maybe this is the Tarkovsky-like space odyssey. It sounds more deep (even recalls Malick's original title for The Tree of Life) than Mr. Machine, which may very well be one his comedies with the Apatow troupe.
Action, Drama, Mystery | Announced
Two secret agents -- and longtime rivals -- are paired up to find a shadowy group of killers known as the Matarese.

I just hope this gets done right. I kinda wish Chris Cunningham would be back on board with Vincenzo Natali producing instead. William Gibson deserves great adaptations of his work.
