Warner Bros. has tapped scribe Bryan Fuller to write a live-action Pinocchio feature for the bigscreen, according to Variety.

Producer Dan Jinks said that he was inspired by Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland to begin work on a new version of Pinocchio. "I think we've found a fresh approach that's going to be very entertaining," he added.

The tale of a woodcarver who dreams of becoming a real boy first appeared in 1883 in Carlo Collodi's "The Adventures of Pinocchio." Walt Disney produced the first feature version of the story with his 1940 feature toon.

No production date has been set.
