The script was written by Michael Vukadinovich, who has previously written super indie films, such as Pete & Goat, which currently has the likes of Anton Yelchin and Amanda Seyfried attached.
Real Steel is dominating the box office right now, remaining in first place for two weekends in a row, grossing $51.7 million. While it makes sense that director Levy would get such a strange script as a prequel to the equally classic and bone-chilling Pinocchio, it seems strange that such a film is even in production.
But hey – the 1940 film Pinocchio is still being watched and feared by little boys and girls all over the country, despite its ancient release date, so I think it’s fair to say that it deserves a prequel.
What do you think? Are you prepared for The Three Misfortunes of Geppetto, the prequel to Pinocchio?
