Robert Zemeckis in talks to direct live-action ‘Pinocchio’

“Back to the Future” and “Forrest Gump” director Robert Zemeckis is in “early talks,” according to Deadline, to direct a live-action version of Disney’s “Pinocchio.”

Disney’s been making its biggest animated hits into live-action movies, with Jon Favreau directing “The Lion King” and Guy Ritchie making a career comeback with “Aladdin.”
