Guillermo del Toro along with the Jim Henson Company are releasing an updated, more "dark" version of the classic tale of "Pinocchio".

del Toro told Deadline, "What we're trying to do is present a Pinocchio that is more faithful to the take that Collodi wrote. That is more surreal and slightly darker than what we've seen before." He went on to say, "The key with this is not making any of it feel gratuitous, because the story is integrated with moments of comedy and beauty. He's one of the great characters, whose purity and innocence allows him to survive in this bleak landscape of robbers and thugs, emerging from the darkness with his soul intact."

Shooting for the film will begin later this year. Matthew Robins penned the script, and Gris Grimly will co-direct with Mark Gustafson.
