Luke Evans To Play The Villain in Disney's 'Pinocchio' Live Action Movie

Luke Evans is about to star in another Disney movie!

The 41-year-old actor, who has previously appeared as Gaston in Beauty and the Beast and will again in the upcoming Disney+ prequel series, is now set to join Pinocchio!

The flick, that is expected to head straight to Disney+, will take notes from the 1940 classic animated movie and center on the tale of a living puppet who, with the help of a cricket as his conscience, must prove himself worthy to become a real boy.

Luke is expected to play The Coachman, opposite Tom Hanks as Geppetto.

If you are unaware, The Coachman is one of many antagonists in the story and is notorious for luring “stupid little boys” to Pleasure Island, where they are transformed into donkeys and sold on the black market.

Just recently, Luke opened up about his split from boyfriend Rafael Olarra.
