Del Toro's Pinocchio

Guillermo Del Toro is one of the busiest men in Hollywood these days, with his duties as writer/director for THE HOBBIT and its sequel set to occupy the next 5 years of his life. It's a wonder then, that he has time to co-write and executive produce a stop motion feature of the "Pinocchio" tale. Although he will not direct the film (for shame!) he will be heavily involved in its production and has said that it will take at least 3 years to complete.

Set to direct are Gris Grimly, who illustrated a 2002 version of “Pinocchio” and Adam Parrish King. Grimly is also writing the script with Del Toro. From my point of view, being a guy who cuts his toe nails and considers it a productive day, I can't help but be impressed by Del Toro's work ethic. The man also has a take on "Frankenstein", "Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde" and "Slaughterhouse V" in the works. A slacker he is not--super jealous I def am.
Extra Tidbit: Guillermo Del Toro's wife Benicio Del Toro is said to be "disturbed" by his husband's workload.
