It’s no secret that Disney loves reaching into the vault for live-action reboot, and now they’ve found their man to lead the Pinocchio project.
Paul King, director of the Paddington franchise, has been chosen to turn Pinocchio into a real boy.
Chris Weitz and Andre Miano are producing the film. Jack Thorne is rewriting the script.
With no cast listed quite yet, production is expected to star in the fall of 2018.
