Ben Stiller might direct Robert Downey Jr. in Pinocchio

It’s been several months since we’ve heard any updates on Robert Downey Jr.’s attempted Pinocchio remake (in which he will play Geppetto). So here’s something to whet your appetite.

RDJ - Ben Stiller

According to Deadline, RDJ indicated on the Iron Man 3 press tour that Ben Stiller is in contention to direct the flick.

They previously worked together on Tropic Thunder, and Downey Jr. scored an Oscar nomination for his troubles.

Warner Bros is now in talks with Stiller, as well as potential writers to retool the screenplay.

Tim Burton was once set to direct, from a script by Jane Goldman (Kick-Ass), though Downey Jr. is keen to move in a different creative direction.
