    Default Guillermo Del Toro To Co-Direct The Jim Henson Company's Pinocchio

    When we reported on The Jim Henson Company's stop-motion adaptation of Carlo Collodi's Pinocchio last May, illustrator Gris Grimly was expected to direct the film, with Guillermo Del Toro producing. It seems that in the intervening year the creative team has been shaken up a bit, as Del Toro is now set to co-direct the film with Mark Gustafson. Grimly will remain onboard as executive producer.

    Gustafson already has a good reputation for stop motion, having been the animation director on Wes Anderson's Fantastic Mr Fox. Since this will be Del Toro's first time helming an animated feature, this collaboration sounds promising. We've already had a sneak peek at the prototype for Pinocchio, seen below.



    I will applaud the filmmakers if they manage to come up with something even one half as nightmarish asthis.
