Shawn Levy to Direct "Pinocchio" Prequel

Posted: October 15th, 2011 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Shawn Levy to Direct "Pinocchio" PrequelSubmit Comment
20th Century Fox has acquired a script for "The Three Misfortunes of Geppetto" and has attached Shawn Levy (Real Steel, Date Night, Night at the Museum) to direct from a script by Michael Vukadinovich.

The story is a prequel to "Pinocchio," in which Geppetto endures a life of misfortune, war and adventure, all to be with Julia Moon, his true love. The tone is similar to "Big Fish" and "The Princess Bride," and will create a fresh look at the Pinocchio character.

Last year, Warner Bros was developing their own "Pinocchio" film that had Tim Burton attached to direct. No word if that's still moving forward.

I hope it's good, we don't need another sh*t prequel running rampant.

@Kursk --- lol. I was looking for a decades old cartoon (probably out of Playboy) a girl riding Pinocchio's face sreaming: 'Lie to me... LIE!'

Pinnochio ... the early years .... Pinnochio is an acorn looking to be a tree .... later, he hopes that they will give him the magic dust so that his wooden d*ck will grow and then he can go into porn like Disney princesses do .....

too late.
