Tom Hanks is in early talks to portray Geppetto in Disney's upcoming live-action adaptation of Pinocchio.
Paddington director Paul King is on board to helm the next live-action Disney adaptation from a script written by Jack Thorne.
The remake comes 78 years after the original animated film captivated audiences in February 1940. The original centered around the woodworker Geppetto who sees a falling star and wishes his puppet of a little boy, Pinocchio, to life.
The movie was Disney's second animated feature film, following three years after Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs.
