Guillermo del Toro presents Pinocchio
During an interview with Guillermo del Toro, Bloody Disgusting has exclusive news about a new del Toro project. The film is something different as it will be a stop-motion feature based on the classic story of Pinocchio.
The project is still in early stages so it will be awhile before production starts. Artist Cris Grimley who did illustrations for the novel that inspired the project will direct. He's been compared to Tim Burton and from his artwork it looks like he could be a million times darker than Burton. Brian Henson and the Jim Henson Company (Dark Crystal, Farscape, Labyrinth) will be involved developing the puppets for the film. The Henson Company is one of the greatest practical effects studios, they've recently come back to feature films.
