Once Upon A Time Sneak Peek Has Emma Thinking About Heading Home! Watch HERE!

Filed under: TV NewsOnce Upon A Time

There's only 4 episodes left of Once Upon A Time until the second season wraps up!

Although we're already trying to find a way to spend our future Sunday nights, we're liking what we see so far from the final episodes!

Ch-ch-check out the sneak peek clip from Lacey (above)!

We knew we were going to get a lot of Rumpbelle in this episode, but we had not idea we were gonna get some Neal/Emma time too!

Yeah, we'll say it — we like them together. And what's more, we like the idea of them going back to the Enchanted Forest together to raise their son and live with their family like they were supposed to.

Maybe they could even get the same deal as Pinocchio — turn back the clock and finally get the childhood they deserve with their parents!

Are we thinking too far ahead? Reaching? Sorry… just excited!

From the wizarding world of Harry Potter to Pinocchio's small Italian village??

That’s what it’s sounding like for Daniel Radcliffe!

Reportly, the actor had been expressed interest and approached Guillermo del Toro about his upcoming 3D film, which will take on the story of everyone’s favorite wooden puppet!

The film was recently announced at the Cannes Film Festival earlier this week and will consist of puppets and stop-motion animation.

Other actors producer/director Del Toro has been eyeing up to lend their voices for the flick? Tom Waits and Christopher Walken!

Definitely two distinct voices!

Pinocchio is currently in pre-production, with a release date set for sometime in 2014!!

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?

WB Looking To Bring Pinocchio To Life!

Filed under: Film Flickers

1pinocchio-002.jpg

That's fine by us, considering the last few attempts by others to make Pinocchio a real boy ended in epic failure - and Jonathan Taylor Thomas. (Where the hell is that kid?)

Warner Brothers is in the early stages of producing a new live-action version of the classic tale of a wooden puppet who wants to be a real boy. The studio has already brought on Dan Jinks to produce and Bryan Fuller to pen the script.

What should really get people excited about the project is Dan Jinks outlook on the story. He told sources that he was inspired to reimagine the tale after seeing Tim Burton's interpretation of Alice in Wonderland - and we all know that faired pretty well.

Sounds like they could be off to a good start.

Do U think you'll check it out?
