The Bishop Charlotte Reporting….
My friends have probably gotten tired of me complaining about how Hollywood never makes anything original these days. Everything’s a sequel or prequel or remake or based on a novel/foreign film/comic book/video game. It’s not any different with this Pinocchio prequel project, except that it could be really fantastic.
The story is about Geppetto, who lives through much suffering to be with his true love. It’s said to be like Big Fish and The Princess Bride, which are both fabulous. The man behind Real Steel is directing, and Mr. Levy’s got a few more movies up his sleeve before he starts on The Three Misfortunes of Geppetto.
For one thing, he’s bringing us (another) Frankenstein. Please, God, don’t let them screw it up again. I don’t think my heart can handle the pain.
Back to topic. I have high hopes for Geppetto, especially these days when I could really use something Fish-y. Fingers crossed, everyone.
