Del Toro Plans Pinocchio Movie

HELLBOY director GUILLERMO DEL TORO is in talks with puppeteers at the JIM HENSON CO. to take fairytale PINOCCHIO to the big screen.
The Mexican filmmaker plans to add a dark spin to the children's story, and is working on a screenplay with Gris Grimly, who illustrated a 2002 animated version of Pinocchio.
During an interview with Bloodydisgusting.com, Del Toro reveals he expects the project to take three years to complete.
If it reaches the big screen, Del Toro will have gone one better than director Francis Ford Coppola, whose attempt to make a Pinocchio movie in the 1990s ended in a messy legal battle with Warner Bros.
