David Bradley, who will portray Pinocchio's creator Geppetto, reportedly names the two stars as his castmates in an interview with Polish outlet Na Ekranie.

AceShowbiz - Ewan McGregor and Tilda Swinton are to appear in Guillermo del Toro's new version of "Pinocchio", according to one of its stars, David Bradley.

The Netflix animation, which has been in production for almost a decade, is due for release next year (2021).

Although casting details have yet to be officially announced, "Harry Potter" star Bradley, who will play Pinocchio's creator Geppetto, apparently let slip details of the cast in an interview with Polish outlet Na Ekranie (On the Screen).

According to the website, Bradley says he is "involved" in the project and "you'll be able to hear me as Geppetto" before going on to reportedly list Ewan, Tilda, Ron Perlman, and Christoph Waltz as his castmates.

Although Disney are planning their own new version of Pinocchio, with Robert Zemeckis on board to direct, del Toro told The Hollywood Reporter he is planning a darker version of the tale, set in Fascist inter-war Italy.

"It's not a 'Pinocchio' for all the family," he explained, adding that it was set," during the rise of Mussolini, do the math. A puppet during the rise of fascism, yes, it is."
