Pinocchio (D: Guillermo del Toro) — animated — Netflix

From Bloody-Disgusting:
"We are trying to get a full stop-motion version of Gris Grimly’s PINOCCHIO off the ground, with the Jim Henson Company," Del Toro breaks the news exclusively to Bloody-Disgusting. "The idea came from Gris, and everybody loves his book about it. The original story is far more perverse and spooky and semi-necrophilia vibe to it in certain aspects. Gris certainly has that vein in him, he wants to do this with that original spookiness in it, we are trying to get it going. The Jim Henson Company is the behind it and we are currently working on the screenplay! Its not coming to a screen near you any time soon, even if it were to begin today it would be about three years in the making, but we are working to make it happen. A full-scale puppet universe takes time," he jokes.

Pinocchio (D: Guillermo del Toro)

In today’s second edition of pics from upcoming Guillermo del Toro films we have some shots from Pinocchio, which you can see below. They come from this week’s Entertainment Weekly via Dread Central.
The pics show off the visual flare we’ve come to expect from del Toro’s films.

Del Toro will co-direct Pinocchio with Mark Gustafson. The film is a stop-motion animated 3D version of Carlo Collodi’s classic tale.

How would you compare your vision of the Pinocchio tale with that of the Disney version?
Well, the Disney version is one of my favorite animated movies of all time. What I’m going for is a PG-13 — more adolescent, more teenage. I hesitate to say just darker, because it’s not just darker. It is a tale that is adapted to a more complex reality, more complex ethical questions. It’s more a tale for youth than a tale for just kids.

Could be interesting to see his take on it. I like a lot of his movies but I'm not sure I'm big on those character designs personally.

The Disney version is for more than just kids.

Interesting that his Pinnochio truly resembles a marionette and would never be mistaken for a real boy.

Guillermo del Toro is riding high off the acclaimed world premiere of his latest movie, “The Shape of Water,” at the Venice Film Festival, but he spent some of the press conference looking ahead at some of the other projects he’s got waiting in development. One movie is his ambitious adaptation of “Pinocchio,” which del Toro said he’s been trying to make for the last 10 years.

“Pinocchio,” as envisioned by del Toro, won’t be the charming Disney fairy tale most viewers love. The director is planning a stop-motion reimagining set during the rise of Mussolini. Del Toro admits that making an anti-fascist “Pinocchio” was always going to be a struggle to get funded, even if he already has the puppets and designs ready to go. He told reporters the following at Venice:

I’ve been looking for financing for almost ten years. We have the puppets, we have the design. I always or almost always complicate my life. None of the movies I want to do are easy. And they don’t belong to anything anyone wanted to do at that time. No one wanted to do superheroes when I did “Hellboy,” no one wanted to do monsters when I did “Pacific Rim.” When I announced “Pinocchio” I got many calls: “Yeah but it’s set during the rise of Mussolini, it’s an anti-fascist Pinocchio.” [mimes they all hung up] If you have $35 million and if you want to make a Mexican happy, here I am.

Del Toro just can’t get the funding necessary to pull off his vision, so the project will have to wait for now to be made. Perhaps the acclaim and potential awards run of “The Shape of Water” will give a studio enough of an incentive to trust del Toro’s vision. The director announced earlier this year he was bringing on “Over the Garden Wall” creator Patrick McHale to help draft the latest iteration of the screenplay. The movie would be his second foray into animation after the Netflix television series “Trollhunter.”
