First Photos: Gleeson, Robbie In AA Milne Biopic

Fox Searchlight Pictures has announced the start of photography on the currently untitled A. A. Milne biopic feature in Oxfordshire, Surrey, East Sussex and London. The first photos from the film are also out and can be seen below.

The story offers a glimpse into the relationship between beloved children’s author A. A. Milne (Domhnall Gleeson) and his son Christopher Robin (Will Tilston), whose toys inspired the magical world of Winnie the Pooh.

Along with his mother Daphne (Margot Robbie), and his nanny Olive (Kelly Macdonald), Christopher Robin and his family are swept up in the international success of the books; the enchanting tales bringing hope and comfort to England after the First World War.

Stephen Campbell Moore, Alex Lawther, Richard McCabe, Nico Mirallegro, Geraldine Somerville and Phoebe Waller-Bridge also star. Simon Curtis (“Woman in Gold,” “My Week With Marilyn”) directs the film from a script by Frank Cottrell Boyce (“Railway Man,” “Millions”) based on a screenplay by Simon Vaughan.
