Screenwriter Jane Goldman is in talks to write the screenplay for Warner Bros.' Pinocchio, which has Robert Downey Jr. attached to star and Tim Burton set to direct.

We first reported on this project back in January, when Robert Downey Jr. and Tim Burton signed on. Bryan Fuller (Hannibal, Pushing Daisies) wrote the original draft of the script.

This version will feature Robert Downey Jr. as Geppetto, who creates the wooden puppet Pinocchio. When his creation goes missing, Geppetto goes on a journey to find the marionette.

Dan Jinks is producing for the studio. It isn't known when production may begin. Jane Goldman is best known for writing movies such as Stardust, Kick-Ass, The Debt, X-Men: First Class, and this year's The Woman in Black. She also wrote the upcoming sequel X-Men: Days of Future Past.

Pinocchio was released in 2013 and stars Robert Downey Jr..

    Lol, @The-Mudder-F-cking-Loud-Killer. What can I say? I recognized her face immediately, but I didn't know from where, and I especially didn't know she was a writer.

    I just IMDB'd her. It turns out that she's a Kick Ass writer... literally. She also has such films as Stardust, Woman in Black, and the Debt under her belt, as well as the upcoming Days of Future Past. Interesting woman, indeed.
