First look at Domhnall Gleeson and Margot Robbie in A. A. Milne biopic arrives online

A new biopic about Winnie The Pooh creator A. A. Milne has recently started production, and to mark the occasion Fox Searchlight Pictures have released our first first look at Domhnall Gleeson (Ex Machina) as the English author, and Margot Robbie (The Wolf Of Wall Street) as his wife Daphne.

The film, previously titled Goodbye Christopher Robin, currently carries the equally snappy working title of Untitled A. A. Milne Project, although it will obviously have a new title upon release.

Set in the wake of World War I, the film sees Milne (Gleeson) draw inspiration from his son, Christopher Robin (newcomer Will Tilston), and write an immediately beloved children's story.

The Milne family – which includes wife and mother Daphne (Robbie) and nanny Olive (Kelly Macdonald) – are subsequently swept into international literary fame, with all of the stresses and strains that brings with it.

Simon Curtis (My Week With Marilyn) is calling the shots for this one, working from a script by frequent Danny Boyle collaborator Frank Cottrell Boyce (Millions) and Simon Vaughan (A Bear Named Winnie).

The film has yet to fins a fixed release date, but whatever it is eventually called, we would expect the Untitled A. A. Milne Project to arrive on a blustery day sometime in 2017.
