Check out the first images (above) from the upcoming 3D, stop-motion Pinocchio movie.

Last we heard, Warner Bros was working on a live action version of the classic tale.

In the meanwhile, The Hobbit Pan's Labyrinth director Guillermo del Toro has teamed up with The Jim Henson Company and Pathe on this edgy version of the Disney classic that draws heavily from a 2002 Pinocchio book, which was illustrated by Gris Grimly.

Grimly will co-direct with Mark Gustafson, and production will start up later this year.

Here's what del Toro had to say about the project:

“There has to be darkness in any fairy tale or children’s narrative work, something the Brothers Grimm, Hans Christian Anderson and Walt Disney understood. We tend to call something Disney-fied, but a lot of people forget how powerfully disturbing the best animated Disney movies are, including those kids being turned into donkeys in Pinocchio. What we’re trying to do is present a Pinocchio that is more faithful to the take that Collodi wrote. That is more surreal and slightly darker than what we’ve seen before.”

More from del Toro:

"The Blue Fairy is really a dead girl’s spirit. Pinocchio has strange moments of lucid dreaming bordering on hallucinations, with black rabbits. The sperm whale that swallows Pinocchio was actually a giant dogfish, which allows for more classical scale and design. The many mishaps Pinocchio goes through include several near-death close calls, a lot more harrowing moments. The key with this is not making any of it feel gratuitous, because the story is integrated with moments of comedy and beauty. He’s one of the great characters, whose purity and innocence allows him to survive in this bleak landscape of robbers and thugs, emerging from the darkness with his soul intact.”

This is exactly what we'd expect from the guy who brought us Pan's Labyrinth, and we're feeling good about it!

Besides, it couldn't POSSIBLY be any worse than the 1996 Jonathan Taylor Thomas Pinocchio movie. Oh, JTT…

What do U think? Are U intrigued by this dark, creepy take on Pinocchio?

One Of Britney's Songwriters Talks New Album, Promises…

Filed under: Music MinuteBritney Spears

new britney spears album will be edgy

Looks like Brit Brit songwriter Claude Kelly is feeling good about her upcoming album.

Here's what he had to say about Britney's new sound:

"It's way more edgy than the last album. [It's] more in the vein of the album before."

Taking some cues from your Blackout sound, Brit Brit? We can appreciate that.

More from Kelly:

"…Dr. Luke and Max Martin are running the show, and it's all about the beats. It has a heavier bass line and it's much harder, more urgent, more club. She's ready again!"

We're totally down for some edgy, bass-infused Britney! Can't wait!

Do U like your Brit Brit edgy? Or are U skeptical?

Jennifer's Cougar Town Character Is Edgy!

jenniferwenn5527820.jpg

But not like MileyBird "edgy," thank goodness.

Dan Byrd plays Courteney Cox's son on the show Cougar Town and when asked about how he liked working with Court's former Friends costar, Jennifer Aniston, he only had wonderful things to say. He told sources to expect the unexpected from the actress, as her character is anything but predictable. He explains:

“I think Jen’s character is sort of fun and different for her, something, if it is successful, could hopefully recur in some type of capacity. She obviously has quite a schedule, but her and Courteney are sisters, you know. She has a bit of an edge in this [role]. We were very lucky and happy to have her.”

Interesting. Perhaps she's going to remind us why she was catapulted to America's sweetheart so many years ago (since her movies aren't doing the trick.)

Remember to set your DVRs for that one!

Taylor Momsen Dresses Like A High-Class Hooker!

Her words, not ours!

The always clASSy Taylor Momsen is in the latest issue of SPIN magazine posing and talking about her "high-class hooker" style.

At least she's honest.

Here's what else raccoon eyes had to say:

On her style:

"I dress for myself. Clearly, it's provocative, but it makes me feel good. And if the only reason it makes someone uncomfortable is because I'm 17, then that person's a scumbag because it shouldn't matter."

On what she's not:

A "drug addict" or a "crazy fuckin' psycho who's gonna end up in the gutter next week"…"I'm figuring out who I am and what I want to be doing."

On the difference between pop and rock:

"People think pop is rock, and the lines are getting blurred. Now Rihanna's wearing fuckin' leather jackets, and it's really annoying."

On the future of her music career:

"I know nobody wants to like our music. Online, people said, 'I really wanted to hate [the EP] but I like it.' I hope things continue on that path. But I'll be making more records whether people are listening to them or not."

Wow. She is SO edgy for a 17 year old. Such a role model!

P.S. We don't know about you, but we're having trouble finding any Material Girl pieces in this shoot. So much for being the face of a brand!

Little J Debuts The Most Hardcore Album Art Of All Time!

2m4f96ejb.jpg

OMG!

Your album is called Light Me Up, and the cover features a little girl in a leather jacket flicking on a LIGHTER?!

How SHOCKING and edgy! You've outdone yourself, Little J!

BARF.

The 'oh so hardcore' Taylor Momsen debuted the shiteous album cover for her surprisingly un-shiteous band, The Pretty Reckless, and we think it sucks worse than her attitude!

We think if you're going to put a CHILD on the cover, you should have used HER!

Taylor Slams Miley Again!

Filed under: Miley CyrusTaylor Momsen

littjaywenn2802458__opt__opt1.jpg

Will she ever shut the EFF up?

When asked if there was a feud between her and Miley Cyrus, Taylor Momsen replied:

"I don't even know Miley Cyrus. There's just no comparison between us, you know. I'm a rocker, she's a pop star. We're entirely different things and there's a big difference between us. I have nothing against her, I don't even know her. I just don't listen to her stuff. I don't give a shit.

"It's ridiculous that Disney is as relevant as it is today even with adults. Where is the real music? What happened to Zeppelin, and people who play their own instruments? There's always going to be pop but it's not real music, it's not me."

GROAN.

Pipe down already, Taylor and pop a cigarette in your mouth or something! We get it — you're just so edgy!
