The writer and producer behind ABC's Pushing Daisies are working on a live-action update of Disney's Pinocchio. It makes sense that the duo behind the defunct series about death and creepy rebirth have been tapped for this project since Pinocchio, as you may remember, was fucking terrifying in parts.
Producer Dan Jinks told Variety that he was inspired by Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland. Screenwriter Bryan Fuller added, "Pinocchio is one of the most emotional fairy tales. I'm over the moon at the opportunity to play with all the characters in this toy box with a large-scale re-telling….It's exactly why I love writing."
