'Paddington's Director Signed On To Bring Disney's 'Pinocchio' To Life

From The Hollywood Reporter:
Paul King, helmer of the whimsical and acclaimed Paddington movies, has been chosen to direct the movie, with the studio hoping to being production this fall.  
Chris Weitz and his Depth of Field partner Andrew Miano are producing. Jack Thorne, who penned the surprise hit Wonder, is rewriting the script.
We also liked this gem of 'commentary', buried in the short article:
Disney... is currently in the midst of bringing to life, Blue Fairy style, its animation library...
Interesting metaphor and an intriguing line of thought to follow.

Stay tuned to Once Upon A Blog for an upcoming article on Fellini's wish to create a live-action Pinocchio, and some other fairy tales too.
