Jane Goldman in talks to write Pinocchio
Friday, 16 November 2012
Pinocchio was originally written by Italian Carlo Collodi and centres around a woodcarver called Geppetto, who creates a puppet that becomes a real boy and whose nose grows whenever he tells a lie. When Pinocchio goes missing, Geppetto embarks on a quest to reunite with his creation. The story has been most famously told in the 1940 animated Disney classic.
The British writer, who is also the wife of talk show host Jonathan Ross, is certainly building a name for herself in Hollywood after collaborating with fellow Brit Matthew Vaughn on the popular films Kick-Ass, Stardust and X-Men: First Class, as well as penning the script for the big screen adaptation of the Susan Hill novel The Woman in Black starring Daniel Radcliffe.
