Casting Live Versions of Animated Classics

The news is out this week that Tim Burton may be directing a live-action version of Pinnocchio starring Robert Downey, Jr. as Geppetto. That's an interesting casting choice, to be sure, but they said the same thing when Downey was cast as Charlie Chaplin, Sherlock Holmes, and as Iron Man, which all make sense after we saw them. Emily Temple at Flavorwire considered how other animated characters might be cast in live-action films if they were to be made today. For example, if The Little Mermaid were a live-action film, Tyra Banks might made a great Ursula. Ya think? After all, there's no law that says the evil octopus has to be fat. Link
