Guillermo Del Toro to Make Stop-Motion "Pinocchio"

Posted: November 13th, 2008 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Guillermo Del Toro to Make Stop-Motion "Pinocchio"Submit Comment
Director Guillermo Del Toro has many projects on his list, but with "The Hobbit" films taking up most of his time these days, he is forced to take producing roles on other movies. One of those movies is a stop-motion version of "Pinocchio." Bloody-Disgusting had a chance to attend a release party for the "Hellboy II: The Golden Army" DVD, where Del Toro spoke briefly of this project. Here is what the had to say:

"We are trying to get a full stop-motion version of Gris Grimly's 'Pinocchio' off the ground, with the Jim Henson Company. The idea came from Gris, and everybody loves his book about it. The original story is far more perverse and spooky and semi-necrophilia vibe to it in certain aspects. Gris certainly has that vein in him, he wants to do this with that original spookiness in it, we are trying to get it going. The Jim Henson Company is the behind it and we are currently working on the screenplay! Its not coming to a screen near you any time soon, even if it were to begin today it would be about three years in the making, but we are working to make it happen. A full-scale puppet universe takes time."

In Grimly's version of "Pinocchio," once there was a lonely woodcutter named Geppetto-who dreamed of having a boy of his own. So one day he carved a boy out of wood and named him Pinocchio. When the puppet comes to life, it's Geppetto's dream come true. Except Pinocchio turns out to be not such a nice boy after all. Pinocchio enjoys nothing better than creating mischief and playing mean tricks. As he discovers, being bad is much more fun than being good. For a while, anyway. Happily for Pinocchio, he will learn that there is much more to being a real boy than having fun.

I'd love to see this but when the hell would he have the time to see it through w/o compromising other projects? Dude needs to slow down.
