Jane Goldman

Screenwriter Jane Goldman, who in the last five years has penned "Kick Ass," "X Men: First Class" and "The Woman in Black," will reportedly next script Tim Burton's "Pinocchio."

No contracts have been signed yet. But the Warner Bros. project has both Burton circling as director and Robert Downey Jr. as Geppetto. The reenvisioning of the classic fairytale will be told through the eyes of the woodcarver, as opposed to the wooden boy of the title. When Pinocchio goes missing, Geppetto embarks on a mission to find and save his marionette son.

The first draft of the script was written by Bryan Fuller ("Pushing Daisies").

As "Pinocchio" is still early in development, Goldman's next onscreen credit may well be Bryan Singer's return to the "X-Men" franchise,  "Days of Future Past," headed for a July 2014 release.
