    Default Robert Downey Jr. to Star as Geppetto in Tim Burton's Pinocchio

    Robert Downey Jr. to Star as Geppetto in Tim Burton's Pinocchio


    Tim Burton will direct, and Robert Downey Jr. will star in, Tim Burton's Pinocchio, a live-action retelling of the timeless fairytale.

    Robert Downey Jr. is set to play Geppetto, a woodcarver who creates a puppet that comes to life only to dream of becoming a real boy. Tim Burton's Pinocchio will actually follow Geppetto's quest to find his missing puppet, offering the flipside to this oft told tale. Bryan Fuller is responsible for the screenplay.

    Neither Tim Burton nor Robert Downey Jr. have a deal in place to move forward on the movie, which is being set up at Warner Bros. But both are anxious to make the film. Warner Bros. wants to go into production soon, so it may end up being the director's next project after Dark Shadows, even though he has a lot of potential scripts he could move on.

    Tim Burton's Pinocchio is one of many movies about the living puppet current in production, including a stop-motion retelling from Guillermo del Toro.

    Pinocchio comes to theaters in 2013 and stars Robert Downey Jr.. The film is directed by Tim Burton.

    I just watched the Disney cartoon for the first time since I was a kid, and it is bizarre. Shipping naughty boys off to an island and turning them into donkeys so they can be sold for slave labour, Geppetto getting swallowed by a whale and spending days inside without getting digested... Weird, wild stuff. Though there might be weirder stuff from the original story.

    The original story is creepy enough (ex: boys being stolen and taken to Pleasure Island). Tim Burton can only make it more unpalatable.

    I'm kinda over Tim Burton. The most interesting thing he's done in years is Helena Bonham Carter.

    I'm afraid you're right. If they do cast Johnny, too, I will watch it anyway.
