    You put your Burton in...you put your Burton out...

    Tim Burton May Direct PINOCCHIO for Warner Bros.; Robert Downey Jr. Courted to Star

    Competing projects with the same premise (usually based on a fairy tale) has become a thing as of late, and a new race has just kicked into high gear. Director Tim Burton is interested in directing Warner Bros.’ take on Pinocchio, and he has his eye on Robert Downey Jr. to star as Geppetto. The film tells the story of the woodcarver’s quest to reunite with his missing marionette. While it’s easy to roll one’s eyes at a project like this, the Black List script was written by Pushing Daisies creator Bryan Fuller. If it’s anywhere near the delightfully charming tone of his ill-fated television series, this Pinocchio take could make for quite the feature film. Throw in Burton and Downey Jr. and that’s a whole lot of whimsy. Hit the jump for more.

    Heat Vision reports that Burton is currently in talks to direct the film, and Downey Jr. is his first choice to star. Downey Jr. has apparently expressed serious interest in the project, but his busy schedule first has to be worked out. Warner Bros. is hoping that both sign on soon so they can fast track the project, but if Burton decides to choose one of his other lingering projects as his next directorial effort (like Miss Peregrine’s Home for Peculiar Children), the studio may move on to another director.

    Then there’s the issue of Downey Jr.’s schedule. His next project is most likely Iron Man 3, and Marvel understandably wants to get production going as soon as possible. There’s no official word on when Pinocchio would shoot, but it would have to be soon for Downey Jr. to be able to fit it in. Personally, I like the idea of Burton and Downey Jr. teaming up on a Bryan Fuller script. They’re three of the more imaginative minds in the business and should cook up quite the epic fairy tale.

    As I said before, Pinocchio kicks off a bit of a competing project race with director Shawn Levy (Real Steel) attached to direct the Pinocchio prequel The Three Misfortunes of Geppetto. That film also centers on Geppetto, but it tells the story of his quest to reunite with his true love (who is a woman, not a puppet). Levy has yet to decide on his next project, so whether Fox kicks The Three Misfortunes of Geppetto into high gear following this Warner Bros. announcement remains to be seen.

    Paramount Moves HANSEL AND GRETEL: WITCH HUNTERS to January 2013

    Renner stars in this Mayís The Avengers and will get his shot at the lead with this fallís The Bourne Legacy, so the studio may want to capitalize on his stardom by placing Hansel and Gretal after these two major releases. Harvey Weinstein recently admitted to doing the same with The Wettest County, which stars Tom Hardy. The release date was moved to after The Dark Knight Rises comes out in order to capitalize on Hardyís recognition following his turn as Bane. Hansel and Gretel currently has no competition on the January 11th date, but the Arnold Schwarzenegger actioner The Last Stand, the 3D re-release of Monsters Inc., the Russell Crowe drama Broken City, and the star-studded magician heist flick Now You See Me all open the following weekend.

    Elizabeth Banks Reveals Details on Her Live-Action Tinkerbell Movie TINK

    Speaking with Movie Hole, Banks likened Tink to another recent, incredibly popular fantastical pic:

    “It’s a live action Tinkerbell movie sort of in the vein of Elf in which I would play Tinkerbell. Tinkerbell gets thrown out of Never Never Land, and it’s about where she goes and who she meets and the adventures she has….Tinkerbell is one of the greatest characters because she’s mischievous and snarky and fun and sexy and jealous and vengeful.”
    I like Banks enough...but isn't she a little mature for this part?

    It was either her or Julia Roberts.
    Only by living absurdly is it possible to break out of this infinite absurdity.

    SNOW WHITE AND THE HUNTSMAN Images Featuring Chris Hemsworth and 8 Dwarves

    One of them gives us a peek at a burly Chris Hemsworth flanked by the eight dwarves. Yes, in Snow White and the Huntsman there are eight dwarves (something to do with a rights issue), but they look like a pretty formidable band of warriors here. Sanders assembled a pretty damn impressive roster of actors to play the dwarves, including Nick Frost, Bob Hoskins, Ray Winstone, Toby Jones, Eddie Marsan, and Ian McShane.


    Shame Eddie Izzard couldn't make it work schedule wise. This is clearly going to be the better of the 2 Snow White movies.
