Live-Action Pinocchio Remake Still In Development At Disney

If we’ve learned anything over the past few years, it’s that Disney won’t stop rifling through their extensive back catalogue until every single one of their animated films gets the live-action treatment. Filled with remakes, spinoffs and sequels featuring some of their most iconic characters, the studio’s upcoming slate is packed with properties that will be familiar to longtime fans and now, we can add another one to the list.

After learning that the Mouse House is planning on remaking Hercules, Hunchback of Notre Dame and James and the Giant Peach, sources close to We Got This Covered say that Pinocchio is on the way as well.

Nathaniel's (Belated) Top Ten List of 2018

by Nathaniel R

Given that we're two months into a new year, the best cinema of 2018 is receding in our mind's eye, still shimmering but moving out of focus. But so much vivid color and feeling remains. Before we are fully blinded to its beauties by a whole new batch of cinematic images to obsess over, here's one last post to honor the year that was. Here's your host's choices for the 25 best films of 2018.

This year's Honorable Mentions are a varied bunch taking us from horny self-discovery in Swedish woods to a trash-heap island in Japan. Strangely, grief was the year's most defining theme across genres as diverse as horror, tragicomedy, bopics, thrillers, character studies, and romantic dramas.

The films are listed in loosely ascending order, though we always reserve the right to change our minds where lists and rankings are concerned:

Disney reportedly retooling Pinocchio after losing director

Back in January it was announced that Paddington helmer Paul King has vacated the director’s chair on Disney’s planned Pinocchio movie, leaving the fate of the live-action adaptation uncertain.

Well, if a new report from The DisInsider is to be believed, the House of Mouse has decided to retool the project, bringing in Jack Thorne to rewrite the screenplay originally penned by Chris Weitz (Rogue One: A Star Wars Story).

According to the site, Disney is looking to shoot Pinocchio in the UK and Italy between June and September of this year, with a budget in the region of $150 million. If so, then presumably we’ll have to get word of a new director and cast in the very near future.

Paddington heading to the small screen for Nickelodeon series

After producing two critically acclaimed feature films in 2014 and 2017, StudioCanal and producer David Heyman’s Heyday Films are set to take Paddington to the small screen with a new CG-animated series on Nickelodeon.

The series, which is going by the working title Paddington, “will follow the marmalade sandwich-loving bear on adventures through London with the Brown family and their friends.”

Having lent his voice to the beloved bear in the two live-action movies, Ben Whishaw is set to reprise his role for the series, which will see Adam Shaw serving as showrunner and Jon Foster and James Lamont tackling scripting duties.

In addition to the animated series, producer Heyman has recently revealed that development is underway on a third Paddington movie, which may well introduce a new director to the series given the hectic schedule of Paddington and Paddington 2 helmer Paul King.
