Guillermo del Toro Talks About His Not So Family Friendly Take On ‘Pinocchio’

Pinocchio

In October it was announced that Academy Award winner Guillermo del Toro (The Shape of Water, Pan’s Labyrinth) was finally going to make his take on Pinocchio at Netflix.

But if you were expecting something similar to Disney’s 1940 animated classic, then you haven’t been paying close enough attention to del Toro’s work. His fairy tales tend to exist in much darker worlds. And that will be no different here, as del Toro says his version is not suitable for the whole family. For a lighter take, you’ll have to look to the live-action remake Disney is currently developing.

Del Toro talked about the project recently, including whether it’s a political film, comparisons to Frankenstein’s monster, and his decade-long quest to get the film made. You can see what he had to say below.

Pacific Rim director Guillermo del Toro

There’s no doubt that Guillermo del Toro is an accomplished filmmaker. The Academy Award-winning director behind The Shape of Water has been behind the lens of a handful of projects like Pan’s Labyrinth, Crimson Peak, the Hellboy films, and Blade II.

But despite all the acclaim he has gotten in the past, del Toro has more than a handful of projects that are unproduced. At The Mountains of Madness, Beauty and the Beast, Fantastic Voyage, and a Hulk TV series, are all promising titles that went unmade. And now, he has revealed a long list of other projects that have gone unproduced. Check out the full list, below.

Pinocchio

The Shape of Water and Pan’s Labyrinth director Guillermo del Toro has been trying to make his own version of the Pinocchio for a long time now. In fact, it’s a passion project he’s wanted to do his entire life.

Now del Toro is finally getting to make Pinocchio. And better yet, he gets to make it the way he’s been trying to make for years. A stop-motion animated feature inspired by Gris Grimly‘s illustrated version of the Carlo Collodi tale, made with the help of none other than The Jim Henson Company (though they won’t be making the puppets, that will be Mackinnon & Saunders). The film is happening at Netflix which makes all the sense in the world with del Toro behind Trollhunters and an upcoming horror anthology there, and The Jim Henson Company’s Dark Crystal project set up there. And the best part? It sounds like this one is ready to go with production expected to begin this fall.

The Witches (1990)

One of my favorite movies growing up was The Witches, the 1990 adaptation of Roald Dahl‘s 1973 book of the same name. A new adaptation of the book has been in the works for quite a while now, with Guillermo del Toro and Alfonso Cuaron attached to direct at different points.

Now that new adaptation is back in business. It’s being reported that Back to the Future and Forrest Gump director Robert Zemeckis is in final negotiations to direct The Witches for Warner Brothers, with a deal expected to be made official soon.

No one still has any freakin’ clue what’s going on in this one, but it is progressing toward finally making its way to our confused eyes.

Thankfully we now have a brief description of Death Stranding to shed a little bit of light on what it’s about, and you can find that below along with the new trailer.
