Disney’s live-action version of Pinocchio is headed back to the drawing board when it comes to finding a director for the film.
Skyfall and American Beauty director, Sam Mendes, has elected to drop out of the live-action Pinocchio film being developed at Disney. The good news is that this film is still in the early stages of planning, leaving Disney with plenty of time to fill Mendes’ shoes.
Talk of a remake of this 1940’s classic has been circulating since 2015. The script was written by Chris Weitz, who also penned the script for the recent live-action remake of Cinderella.
