Earlier this morning we reported that things were looking grim for Guillermo del Toro and Gris Grimly's Pinocchio. However Gris just wrote in to clear the air a bit.
Guillermo del Toro and Gris Grimly's take on the classic tale of Pinocchio was a project we were really excited for around these parts. Talk about two delightfully dark and twisted minds coming together. Alas, the project has been removed from the mythical burner.
Entertainment Weekly scored some first look artwork from the darker version of Pinocchio that's headed our way, and of course we're here to make the catch to keep you guys ahead of the game. Check it out! This certainly ain't your daddy's little wooden boy!
Guillermo del Toro is a filmmaker with lots on his plate. In addition to his many upcoming feature films including the tasty sounding giant monster bash Pacific Rim, the man also has several more kid-friendly animated horror projects on tap, and we've got an update from him on all of them.
We've been excited for this project since it was first announced way back in 2008. I mean, come on! Guillermo del Toro collaborating with the incredible artist Gris Grimly? As a fan could you possibly ask for more? Good things are coming, Dread heads. Read on!
Now this is what we call an update! Gris Grimley is currently working on so many projects it's hard to keep track of them all, but today he provided us with info on three of them, including a new trailer for his short film Wounded Embark of the Lovesick Mind and, even more exciting, his feature film Pinocchio, which is being produced by Guillermo Del Toro and The Jim Henson Company.
Now here's some good news to brighten your weekend; a darker, more horror-friendly version of Pinocchio is being developed by Guillermo del Toro, The Jim Henson Company and Gris Grimly, according to Variety. Wow, with a team like that behind it, you know it’s going to be interesting if nothing else.
