Daniel Radcliffe may have lined up his next project, as he’s reportedly expressed interest in Guillermo Del Toro’s stop-motion Pinocchio film.

Last week, we reported that Del Toro was gearing up to direct a 3D, stop-motion version of Pinocchio. Now speaking with potential buyers at Cannes, Del Toro mentioned that Radcliffe may be involved in the project.

The Playlist reports:

According to the “Pan’s Labyrinth” filmmaker, he was approached by Daniel Radcliffe, who’s keen to get involved on the project, and the actor is one of a number of names that he hopes might become involved, including Tom Waits, and Christopher Walken, who Del Toro wants to play the fox. The helmer stressed that no deals have been made, but he must also be on relatively safe ground if he’s willing to talk about it publicly. So could Radcliffe end up voicing the little wooden boy of the title? He’d certainly be a strong choice.

Dan recently wrapped Kill Your Darlings, and is also set to star in a British drama miniseries with Jon Hamm. Are you excited to hear of Dan’s potential involvement?

    OMG, yes! Mainly because I love Dan’s voice and normally I would say no because I think Dan sounds too old to play a “boy” but….um, this is Del Toro we’re talking about here.
    I bet if Dan is cast for Pinocchio’s voice, it won’t be cute boy we know from kids movies.

    Who knows I like this idea.

    Wow Dan is on a roll lately!

    *I hope it’s not because he wants to do a lot of roles and then dissapear or something*

    you know get his acting out of the way forever so he can do other things- like writing books,directing,etc

    How many projects is Guillermo Del Toro doing again?  I know there was the Haunted Mansion reboot, the Beauty and the Beast project with Emma Watson, and maybe a few others but I can’t remember.

      I don’t think Emma Watson was ever confirmed for Beauty and the Beast.

    Anything with Daniel Radcliffe I am willing to watch.  Even if it is another fairy tale.
