'Spotlight' Screenwriter to Rewrite Disney's Christopher Robin Film
Spotlight writer Tom McCarthy will write a new script for Disney's upcoming Christopher Robin film. The original script was by Alex Ross Perry, and the film itself is being directed by Finding Neverland and Quantum of Solace helm Marc Forster.
The film will follow a grown up version of the Winnie the Pooh character who in adulthood has lost the joy his ambitious younger self honed. Pooh then visits him in an attempt to remind him of the magic of the Hundred Acre Wood.
