Matteo Garrone to Direct New Adaptation of 'Pinocchio'
Carlo Collodi's famous tale Pinocchio is getting another adaptation, this time from director Matteo Garrone via Archimede Productions. The film will star Toni Servillo as Pinocchio's father, Geppetto.
HanWay Films has worldwide rights to the film, and it will be unveiled at the American Film Market. Garrone has penned the script, and filming will begin in the spring in Lazio and Tuscany, Italy.
“In Garrone we have a visionary filmmaker re-imagining one of the most famous stories in the world rarely revisited since the Disney classic. This is a true cinematic treat with a very special cast," said HanWay managing director Gabrielle Stewart.
