RDJ For Burton’s Pinocchio?

January 7, 2012

Tim Burton wants to make a live-action version of “Pinocchio”  setting his sights on Robert Downey Jr. to play Geppetto according to Heat Vision.

Bryan Fuller wrote the script taken from the 1883 children’s novel, The Adventures of Pinocchio, by Carlo Collodi, that tells the story of a woodcarver (Downey Jr.) who creates the puppet who dreams of becoming a real boy.

The 1940 Disney animated film remains the most famous version of the tale on film

Like Burton’s “Alice in Wonderland“, this is something of a sequel to the original with Geppetto setting out on a quest to reunite with his missing marionette.

Dan Jinks will be producing.
