Disney may have found its live-action Christopher Robin.
The Hollywood Reporter revealed that Ewan McGregor is in talks to be Christopher Robin in Disney’s live-action take on the Winnie The Pooh franchise titled Christopher Robin. The film is based around an adult Robin who is no longer in touch with the Hundred Acre Woods and is focused on his business life, but eventually finds his way back to his beloved childhood sanctuary.
The film is to be directed by World War Z and Quantum of Solace director Marc Foster. Oscar-nominated screenwriter Allison Schroeder is also being brought in to add some rewrites to a script already written by Alex Ross Perry and Tom McCarthy. The Jungle Book producer is also producing this film. Christopher Robin doesn’t currently have a release date, but is one of many live-action films scheduled to come from Disney.
