Disney announce another live action film, this time for Pinocchio
A real life boy
Disney is capatalising on the success of its live action versions of both Alice in Wonderland and Cinderella, announcing yet another modern-day version of one of its classic films – this time Pinocchio.
According to reports, Peter Hedges (About a Boy) has been tapped to write the live action screenplay, which is thought will share more similarities with the original 1883 version by Carlo Collodi than the 1940's Disney animation.
Disney also recently announced live action film adaptations for The Jungle Book, Beauty and the Beast, The Little Mermaid, Dumbo, and Mulan.
