Tom Hanks Courted as Geppetto in Disney’s Live-Action ‘Pinocchio’

Nov 29, 2018

Today, Variety announced that Oscar-Winner Tom Hanks (Toy Story 4) is being eyed to star in Disney’s upcoming live-action remake of Pinocchio. Geppetto is the toy maker that builds a wooden Pinocchio in his toy shop. As well as becoming a father figure to the young toy that wants to be nothing more than a real boy. Paddington director Paul King was recently announced to be helming the project.

When the woodworker Geppetto sees a falling star, he wishes that the puppet he just finished, Pinocchio, could become a real boy. In the night, the Blue Fairy grants Geppetto’s wish and asks Jiminy Cricket to serve as the wooden boy’s conscience.

Pinocchio has no set release date
