According to Deadline, Disney continues to have no plans at all to cool it with remaking their animated films as live-action. Now they're working on a live-action version of Pinocchio, hiring About a Boy and The Odd Life of Timothy Green writer Peter Hedges--who's starting to feel a little preoccupied with strange little boys showing up--to pen a script said to be only "loosely based on the original." But hopefully now with a more horrifically realistic transformation into a donkey.

In case you've forgotten, Disney already has live-action takes on The Jungle Book, Dumbo, Beauty and the Beast, Mulan, and Winnie-the-Pooh in the works as follow-ups to their live-action Alice in Wonderland, Maleficent, Cinderella and the oft-forgotten Sorcerer's Apprentice, which was of course based on the beloved cartoon Nicolas Cage.
