Ewan McGregor is in talks to star in the live-action “Christopher Robin” for Disney Pictures.
“Hidden Figures” screenwriter Allison Schroeder has also come onboard to work on the film’s script for the live-action film. Alex Ross Perry and Tom McCarthy worked on previous drafts
The story centers on the child from A. A. Milne’s Winnie the Pooh stories – but now he’s all grown up. McGregor will play the adult Christopher Robin, who has lost his sense of imagination and is a businessman focused on work and success.
Brigham Taylor is producing with the film to open next year.
