The movie will centre on the Christopher Robin character central to the Winnie the Pooh franchise, only he’ll be an adult who’s lost his imagination in focusing on his career.

Hidden Figures screenwriter Allison Schroeder has been hired by Disney to reinvigorate their already existing script which was originally developed by Alex Ross Perry (Listen Up Philip; Queen of Earth) and later worked on by Tom McCarthy (Up; Spotlight).

The movie is currently set to be directed by Quantum of Solace and World War Z director Marc Forster, though the release date has not yet been announced.
