Nerds! We are living in a great time, there’s nerd news coming out so often it’s a challenge to keep up! So, let’s get down to business, here’s our top 10 nerd news bites (in no particular order).
Paul Thomas Anderson and RDJ are teaming up for a non-Disney live action Pinocchio where RDJ will be Geppetto. More info here.
Looks like Disney is going down their animated classics for the next live action. There’s been any announcements, and we are totally excited for Beauty and the Beast! Seems The Sword in the Stone will be joining the list! It’s reported GoT writer/producer Brian Cogman will be penning the script, with Brigham Taylor producing. I am intrigued and am excited to see Merlin. I wonder if Archimedes will be present.

It’s an all female comic/text anthology of true stories about love, romance and sex; featuring new cartoons by Margaret Atwood. Learn more about it here.
