Pinnocchio: Del Toro style

Deadline is reporting that Guillermo Del Toro has yet another project with his name attached, and this one may be one of the most interesting as he will be lending his talent and style to deliver us his vision for the beloved Pinocchio.

Guillermo del Toro, The Jim Henson Company and Pathe are ready to go on Pinocchio, a 3D stop motion animated adaptation of the Carlo Collodi fairy tale that will be edgier than the 1940 animated Disney classic. Gris Grimly will co-direct with Mark Gustafson, and production will begin later this year.

And they were nice enough to release some images:

I honestly would expect something like this from Tim Burton before Del Toro but that’s the part that has me intrigued. The pre-production photos have an eerie ‘Burton’ feel to them and I hope that feeling gets resolved as things are further developed. I can’t say that this is something I’d wait in line to see at the theater but the idea of a dark Pinocchio from Del Toro shouldn’t be completely ignored, not to mention that sculpture looks like it needs to be on my desk.
