Jane Goldman is apparently in talks to work on the script for Tim Burton and Robert Downey Jr' s Pinocchio project.

The screenwriter of Kick-Ass and The Woman In Black has been asked to look at the live action film's script after an initial draft from Pushing Daisies' Bryan Fuller, Heat Vision blog reports.

Tim and Robert are not thought to have officially committed yet to the project, in which Robert would play Pinocchio's creator Geppetto.

Jane, who is married to chat show host Jonathan Ross, is said to be incorporating Robert's notes into the new script.

The film is one of several Pinocchio projects in the pipeline, with Guillermo del Toro working on an animated version and The Three Misfortunes Of Geppetto being made by 20th Century Fox.

The only way to get the training you need is to do some volunteer work. Making a temporary sacrifice will eventually pay off. Be patient.More
