Jane Goldman To Rewrite Tim Burton's PINOCCHIO Starring Robert Downey Jr.

The live-action adaptation directed by Tim Burton and starring Robert Downey Jr. is moving forward, as Warner Brothers. have set Kick-Ass and X-Men: First Class writer Jane Goldman to pen the script...


The classic children's story Pinocchio, written by Carlo Collodi in 1883, will soon be a live-action adaptation from Warner Bros. Pictures, directed by Tim Burton and starring Robert Downey Jr. The initial draft of the script was written by Bryan Fuller, but according to The Hollywood Reporter, Jane Goldman (X-Men: First Class, Kick-Ass) will rewrite it.

"Jane Goldman is in negotiations to work on the script for the project, lending considerable heat to what would see Tim Burton direct Robert Downey Jr. for the first time."

According to the report, Burton and Downey haven't signed on yet, but the two of them have been eyeing the project and talking to the studio for months now. THR also has a brief summary of this adaptation:

"In the version being developed at Warner Bros., Downey would play Geppetto, the woodcarver who creates a puppet who dreams of becoming a real boy and whose nose grows when he tells a lie. When Pinocchio goes missing, Geppetto embarks on a quest to reunite with his marionette."

So, what do you think? Are you looking forward to seeing Robert Downey Jr. teaming up with Tim Burton for this film, if everything goes as planned?
