In October 2019, it was announced that Robert Zemeckis was in talks to replace King as director, while Chris Weitz had written a new script along with King and Simon Farnaby.[4] Chris Weitz will also produce the film with Andrew Milano.[4] It was also reported that Tom Hanks has turned down the role of Geppeto.[4] In November 29, 2018, Zemeckis officially signed on as director. In August 2020, Disney announced that they were again eyeing Hanks for the role of Geppetto.[5]
