Tim Burton's 'Pinocchio' Lands a Scribe


Warner Bros. seems to be one step closer to locking in Tim Burton and Robert Downey Jr. to Pinocchio.

With an initial draft by Bryan Fuller (Mockingbird Lane), Warner Bros. has brought in screenwriter Jane Goldman (The Woman in Black, Kick-Ass) to write the next pass. Goldman will incorporate Downey Jr.'s notes into her draft with the idea that Downey Jr. and Burton will both sign on the dotted line.

Completely separate from Guillermo del Toro's Pinocchio, Burton's film would see Downey Jr. as Gepetto, "the woodcarver who creates a puppet who dreams of becoming a real boy and whose nose grows when he tells a lie.
