Tom Hanks In Talks To Join Disney's Live-Action 'Pinocchio' as Geppetto

Tom Hanks is currently in talks to join the live action Pinocchio film.

According to Variety, the 64-year-old actor would be playing Geppetto, Pinocchio’s maker turned father in the live action film from Disney.

Robert Zemickis will be directing the movie, and if cast, would reunite with Tom for their fourth movie together. The first three were Forrest Gump, Cast Away and The Polar Express.

The animated version of Pinocchio is based on Carlo Collodi‘s children’s novel, “The Adventures of Pinocchio, and centered on Geppetto who carves a wooden puppet brought to life by a fairy — and told he will become a real boy if he proves himself to be “brave, truthful, and unselfish.”

Just recently, Tom and his wife, Rita Wilson, were spotted enjoying some downtime on a yacht in Greece shortly after becoming Greek citizens.
