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!
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!
Dread Central favorite Gris Grimly has taken the time to speak a bit about the genesis and the current state of his upcoming stop-motion telling of Pinocchio that he's making in conjunction with Mark Gustafson and Guillermo del Toro, and it's great to hear from the man himself.
Around these parts we've been singing the praises of artist Gris Grimly for several years now. Simply put, the man has a very distinct and eye-catching style all of his own. It's nice to see the rest of the world catching up!
