"Dark, Twisted" Pinocchio Remake On the Way

"Dark, Twisted" Pinocchio Remake On the Way

Normally, learning that a remake of Pinocchio is in development might make me roll my eyes and mourn for my lost childhood — you know, things like that. But something tells me this dark and twisted remake is going to be different.

For one thing, it's got Guillermo Del Toro behind it as an executive producer, and if ever there was a person who could create a good "fractured fairytale" remake of this story, I'd think he'd be the one. For another, the Jim Henson Co. is creating the adaptation as a stop-motion animated feature. And third, it will be directed by Gris Grimly, a children's book illustrator who likes all things creepy and ghastly and ghoulish; the style of the movie will be based on the 2002 Pinocchio that he illustrated (that's his cover at right).

According to The Hollywood Reporter, "In the retelling, when Pinocchio comes to life, he turns out not to be that nice of a boy, creating mischief and playing mean tricks." But it's not all grim: "He eventually learns a few lessons."

The Pinocchio story always creeped me out a little anyway, and I'd be up for seeing an all-out dark take on the tale. What do you think?
