Director Rupert Sanders Interview – Kristen Stewart is a Wild Horse

What are fans going to get from this version of Snow white that they won’t have seen before from the familiar fairy tale?

It’s a very big, very epic, very intense ride. I think the one thing I’m most proud of is that it’s got a tremendous heart, to many big films nowadays just take form you and they don’t give anything back. I think that’s one thing we really tried to do was bring the heart. This stor is about the beating heart and I really wanted to bring that back to the audience.

That heart is in an extraordinary cast with Charlize and Kristen. Can you tell us what they each brought to their roles?

Charlize is incredibly beautiful; she’s an incredibly strong actress. She won an Oscar for throwing that beauty away and I think that’s the one thing this role required.  Kristen, she’s so spirited and wild, she’s got a lot on her shoulders in this movie. There’s something very intense about her she’s like a untamed wild horse.  She’s the modern Snow White for me!

Was it a lot of fun on set?

Where to start! Everyday something bizarre happened. That’s filmmaking! We had a thousand people perched on the cliffs in Wales with 250 horses galloping down the beach. Strange stuff happens. But we all just had a really goodtime and I hope that we all get to work together again someday.

Do you have a message for fans before you leave us?

Yeah I just really hope you see something in here that stay with you for a long time. I very much think it can.

Del Toro directing new Pinocchio film

Guillermo Del Toro will officially co-direct his first animated film with a new 3D stop motion version of Pinocchio for the Jim Henson Company. Del Toro will partner with acclaimed animation director Mark Gustafson.

Del Toro is currently finishing post-production Warner Bros giant monster movie “Pacific Rim” and has announced plans to begin shooting Pinocchio in summer 2013.

The screenplay by Del Toro’s regular collaborator Matthew Rollins finds Pinocchio embarking on amazing adventures to prove his incredible love for his father. This version of the classic fable about a wooden boy who comes to life will be set in Italy between the first and second world wars. Explaining this choice Del Toro said:

“It was when everyone was behaving like a puppet, except for puppets”

Del Toro was first attached to the project as a producer in 2008 but gradually came around to co-directing the complex project which will take an entire year to shoot.

“Little by little, I realized that I should direct”

First brought to the big screen by Disney in their 1940 animated classic, Del Toro has spoken about how profoundly the story has influenced him. Del Toro actually owns a real life collection of puppets and original artwork from the Disney production.

No casting has been confirmed yet but Del Toro is apparently considering Tom Waits and Donald Sutherland for key vocal roles.

Jim Henson Company CEO Lisa Henson will produce the film and explained why Del Toro was such an obvious choice for the project:

“Guillermo has been so passionate about this project from its inception and it is an honour to have him bring his unique blend of live action and animation experience to this well-loved story”
