Disney’s Christopher Robin heads to UK
Christopher Robin is reportedly an original live-action story which re-visits the little boy at the heart of the Winnie the Pooh tales when he is a work-driven businessman who has long lost the joyful imagination he enjoyed as a child.
Marc Forster (pictured, World War Z, Quantum of Solace) directs from a screenplay by Alex Ross Perry with Brigham Taylor among the producers.
The UK team is not quite in place yet but we will be publishing the names of key hires on Production Intelligence once active pre-production is underway, so PI subscribers should follow Christopher Robin to receive email alerts as things progress.
The US studio giant is also working on Cruella, centring on every canine’s nemesis from 101 Dalmatians, Cruella de Vil, but this has been pushed back a little.
