American Beauty and Skyfall director Sam Mendes is apparently being considered to direct a new live-action adaptation of Pinocchio. Deadline reports that Mendes is currently in “early talks” to helm the film while Chris Weitz has written the latest version of the script and will produce. Pinocchio is just one of many live-action fairytale films Disney has in development including Aladdin, The Lion King, and a spin-off of 101 Dalmations about Cruella de Vil.
