Sam Mendes no longer directing Disney's live-action Pinocchio

14 Novembre 2017

What exactly motivated Mendes, the Oscar-winning director behind films like American Beauty, to depart from the movie is now unknown, which is only made more complicated when considering the fact that Mendes left Disney's live-action James and the Giant Peach to join Pinocchio earlier this year. The feature, based on the classic 1940 cartoon, was penned by Rogue One scripter Chris Weitz. He was previously in talks for the live-action James and the Giant Peach adaption before exiting the movie for Pinocchio.

Right now, sources are saying that Mendes' exit from Pinocchio isn't linked to Bond 25, but never say never in this town.

Ever since it ended in 2006, there has been talk of David Milch reviving it as a series of movies for HBO. Ian McShane headed up the cast of the series as Al Swearengen.

Mendes most recent film was the James Bond installment "Spectre, ' and he is now directing the West End play 'The Ferryman". Meanwhile, Bill Condon recently steered Beauty and the Beast to a worldwide gross of $1.2 billion.

No news on who will replace Mendes on Pinocchio, but we'll keep you updated.
