EW scored a first look at some concept art (above and below) for Guillermo Del Toro’s Pinocchio, which del Toro will be co-directing with Mark Gustafson, the animation director on Wes Anderson’s The Fantastic Mr. Fox. While the art is credited to the Jim Hensen company, it looks to be drawn by popular genre artists Gris Grimly, who at one time was co-directing from a screenplay based on his story. He is producing. You’ll see Geppetto, a wooden Pinocchio, Manglfoco and his evil monkey sidekick.
“Once there was a lonely woodcutter named Geppetto-who dreamed of having a boy of his own. So one day he carved a boy out of wood and named him Pinocchio.When the puppet comes to life, it’s Geppetto’s dream come true. Except Pinocchio turns out to be not such a nice boy after all. Pinocchio enjoys nothing better than creating mischief and playing mean tricks. As he discovers, being bad is much more fun than being good. For a while, anyway. Happily for Pinocchio, he will learn that there is much more to being a real boy than having fun.”
Del Toro plans to begin shooting in the summer of 2013.
