Director Guillermo del Toro spokes about his hopes to make the stop-motion version of Pinocchio, which he really still wants to make:

“I’ve been looking for financing for almost ten years. We have the puppets, we have the design. I always or almost always complicate my life. None of the movies I want to do are easy. And they don’t belong to anything anyone wanted to do at that time. No one wanted to do superheroes when I did “Hellboy”, no one wanted to do monsters when I did “Pacific Rim”. When I announced “Pinocchio” I got many calls: “Yeah but it’s set during the rise of Mussolini, it’s an anti-fascist Pinocchio”.  [mimes they all hung up] If you have $35 million and if you want to make a Mexican happy, here I am.”
