Fuller To Pen A Live-Action “Pinocchio”

Bryan Fuller (“Dead Like Me,” “Pushing Daisies”) has been selected to pen the script for a live-action “Pinocchio” feature for Warner Bros. Pictures reports Variety.

Carlo Collodi’s “The Adventures of Pinocchio” was first published in 1883, though is most well known for the Disney animated feature adaptation.

Dan Jinks is producing and claims to have “found a fresh approach that’s going to be very entertaining”. He cites the success of Tim Burton’s “Alice in Wonderland” as an inspiration.
