Well, this sounds interesting. Guillermo Del Toro and Mark Gustafson will both direct a stop-motion animated “Pinocchio” feature with The Jim Henson Company.

It's interesting because I didn't even know the Henson Company did stop-motion animation. Del Toro wrote the story based on the classic tale of a wooden boy who goes on a series of adventures. Lisa Henson, the CEO of The Henson Company had this to say:

"Guillermo has been so passionate about this project from its inception and it is an honor to have him bring his unique blend of live action and animation experience to this well-loved story, collaborating with the talented Mark Gustafson.”

Stop-motion animation takes a long time to do so we'll keep you updated on this cool movie!

    Admire bryan singer story telling, not easy if you introducing a large cast.. As someone who do not know anything about x-men lore or identify himself as superhero geek.. His x-men 2000 film grab my interest on the series.. Still remember that powerful opening scene, the nazi concentration camp.. really set the theme of the series.. Found some of the other superhero movies.. Too comical for my taste still,.. Will see this movie on the first day of opening..

    1) Daredevil was ten years ago, and its problems were the director and script writers' fault. 2) Maybe but look at James Bond and hell even Batman throughout the years, people will get over it. 3) I want to tell you to check out the Town and Hollywoodland to see him act well, but you'd seem too hell bent to ever change your mind.
