A Biopic on Winnie-The-Pooh Creator, A.A. Milne?


From a story in the NY Daily News...

The film will explore A.A. Milne’s life between 1918 and 1930 and will disclose details of his relationship with his son, their bond over “Winnie-the-Pooh” and how fame affected their lives. Milne named the character Winnie-the-Pooh after his son’s teddy bear and used his son as the basis for the character of Christopher Robin.

The estimated cost of the project is between $10 million and $15 million. Simon Vaughan, who created the BBC drama “Ripper Street” and produced the five-part television miniseries “Parade’s End,” wrote the script for the biopic.

Oh, and here are pictures of the original Pooh bear.
