Warner Bros. is banking on Jane Goldman to take over scriptwriting duties for the upcoming Pinocchio, reveals The Hollywood Reporter, with Tim Burton potentially directing Robert Downey Jr. for the first time.

English model, author, screenwriter and television host Jane Goldman (Kick-Ass) will work on a first draft penned by Bryan Fuller (Dead Like Me). She will incorporate notes by Robert Downey Jr. into the script based on the tale by Carlo Collodi. Getting Goldman on-board could speed up the conclusion of a deal between Burton and Downey. 

Robert Downey Jr. would play Gepetto, the woodcarver who built the puppet that turns into a little boy. Tim Burton's previous experience with chidren's tales include Alice in Wonderland (2010).
