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.”

Tom Hanks Slams Anyone Who Doesn't Follow 'Basic' Coronavirus Protocols: 'Shame On You'

Tom Hanks is saying shame on you to those who don’t wear a mask, social distance, and wash their hands.

“There’s really only three things we can do in order to get to tomorrow: Wear a mask, social distance, wash our hands,” Tom said (via People) at a press conference for his film Greyhound, premiering on Apple TV+ on July 10. “Those things are so simple, so easy, if anybody cannot find it in themselves to practice those three very basic things – I just think shame on you. Don’t be a p—-, get on with it, do your part. It’s very basic. If you’re driving a car, you don’t go too fast, you use your turn signal and you avoid hitting pedestrians. My Lord, it’s common sense.”

If you don’t remember, Tom and his wife Rita Wilson were two of the first celebrities diagnosed with Coronavirus. They thankfully recovered.

Tom said, “Oh, as the canaries in the coal mine for the COVID-19 experience, we are fine. We had about 10 days of very uncomfortable symptoms. Not life-threatening, we’re happy to say. We were isolated in order to keep an eye on ourselves because if our temperatures had spiked, if our lungs had filled, if any number of things had gone wrong with this, we would have needed expert medical care. We didn’t. I guess we were model recoverers from COVID-19, but we were also isolated so that we would not give it to anybody else that we came in contact with, and since then have been doing the same isolating, social distancing that is being asked of the world so, we are fine.”
