Looks like the live action version of Pinocchio will be getting a top notch writer to tweak up the scrip. 6 time Oscar nominee Paul Thomas Anderson has been hired to write a draft for the upcoming film. It is being produced by Robert Downey Jr and his wife Susan as part of their Team Downey production company. Anderson and Downey have been friends for years and have been looking for a project to work on together for some time now according to sources. Anderson is being brought on to tweak up a script originally written by Michael Mitnick of The Giver. Disney who is distributing the picture, also hopes to nab Anderson as their director for this movie as well. Other than Downey playing Geppeto no other castings have been announced nor the films release date.
