NEWS: Del Toro's Pinocchio, Star Trek, and 3rd Narina...

Hey guys! It's Saturday night, and while not much normally happens on the weekend, there are a few things that are worth noting, so here are the headlines...

- It looks as though Guillermo del Toro is looking at adding even more to his already packed schedule. Thanks to Variety for the news...

Guillermo del Toro (upcoming The Hobbit) is developing Pinocchio as a stop-motion feature with the Jim Henson Co. as a darker version of the original fairy tale.

The project will be produced by JHC co-toppers Brian Henson and Lisa Henson along with senior VP Jason Lust. Del Toro will executive produce.

Del Toro's working on the screenplay with Gris Grimley, who illustrated a 2002 version of "Pinocchio." Grimley and Adam Parrish King will co-direct the film.


Well isn't this just awesome news! I don't think anyone could do more justice to Pinocchio than Guillermo del Toro. What are your thoughts?

- Quantum of Solace is projected to be the highest grossing Bond film in history. It grossed about $27 Million on Friday, and is looking at a $70-73 Million for the whole weekend.

- The new Star Trek trailer has been released, if bootlegged, online! If you didn't check it out before Quantum of Solace, here it is below...



Awesome! I'm not a big Trek fan, I'm not really a Trek fan at all, but now I'm moderately looking forward to this flick...What are your thoughts?

- Finally, with the HUGE bomb that the last Chronicles Of Narnia film was, Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian, there hasn't been any news on a new Narnia film. That trend has not changed. In a recent press release, there was not a single mention of a green light on a new Narnia film, so it looks dim for this huge literary hit at least in the film world. More on this as it comes...

Come back later for more news...

Go see something good!
