Paddington director Paul King is taking on Pinocchio next

After tossing around names like Paul Thomas Anderson and Sam Mendes, Disney has finally settled on someone a bit more logical—and gettable—for their live-action Pinocchio remake. According to THR, the studio has found their director in Paul King, the helmer whose once discounted Paddingon series has proven to be one of the best-reviewed franchises ever. Going from living teddy bear to living marionette puppet shouldn’t be too big a leap for him. Production is expected to begin in the fall, even while in our hearts, live-action Pinocchio will forever remain Jonathan Taylor Thomas.
