Disney is courting Ewan McGregor to star as adult Christopher Robin in their Hook-like story of a grown up Christopher Robin who has lost his sense of imagination. If you are having trouble remembering who the heck Christopher Robin is, look no further than Winnie the Pooh and Piglet, and Tigger and company.
Ewan McGregor is a world class actor who just returned to the sequel for Danny Boyle’s indie classic Trainspotting. McGregor’s Christopher Robin will be wealthy businessman who does nothing but hone in on working.
The film will be getting a script pass by Hidden Figures scribe Allison Schroeder and will be directed by World War Z director Marc Forster. McGregor was last in Beauty and the Beast also for Disney where he voiced Lumiere.
