Hey guys, thanks for watching clevver movies im your host Tatiana Carrier with the latest on the pinochhino movie, and our iron man who is now attached to the flick!!! . According to the Hollywood reporter, Tim Burton has his eye on ONE guy to be geppetto in his live action version of the classic tale of Pinocchio, and that guy is none other than Robert Downey Junior! . The Pinocchio story was first published in an Italian children's book written by Carlo Collodi and has been adapted several times, including the 1940 animated Disney classic. For those of you NOT familiar, Geppetto, is the woodcarver who creates the puppet who dreams of becoming a real boy...the puppet: Pinocchio. . As of now neither Burton nor Downey has a deal with Warners, but sources say Burton is keen to direct the film and has begun talks with the studio, so it's just a question of whether Pinocchio will be his next movie. He also is eyeing an adaptation of Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children at Fox, among other projects. Warners wants to move quickly with Pinocchio, so if Burton chooses to make another movie first, the studio might move on to other directors. . Lets hope he gets to it, bc I cant place a better man to put this whimsical story on the big screen!
