Tim Story To Helm A “Corduroy” Film

CBS Films is at work on a film based on Don Freeman’s beloved department store teddy bear character Corduroy.

Tim Story (“Ride Along,” “Think Like a Man”) is set to direct the project which follows the plush bear who is nearly purchased by a young girl, Lisa.

Lisa’s mother notices that Corduroy is missing a button, however, and the pair leave the poor bear to worry that no one will want him. That night, Corduroy sets out across the department store to recover his missing button.

No screenwriter is as of yet attached.
