Pinocchio goes to be a Real Boy in Disney’s live-action adaptation, however it received’t be Sam Mendes pulling the strings.
In non-The Lion King information (I do know, I’m upset too), Disney is engaged on a live-action Pinocchio.
With a script by Rogue One‘s Chris Weitz, the plan was for Oscar-winning director Sam Mendes to take the reins, however in response to The Tracking Board, that’s no longer the case.
Collider speculates that Mendes’ departure may have one thing to do with the upcoming James Bond film and, though Mendes has beforehand said that he was accomplished with Bond, the attract of Daniel Craig returning (and it being the 25th anniversary film) may be sufficient to convey him again in rivalry.
As for Pinocchio, properly, the sport is vast open. Seeing as each single live-action Disney adaptation barring Mulan has been or shall be directed by a person, nonetheless, may we dare to hope that they create a feminine director on board for this one?
