Just weeks after a whirlwind of Beauty and the Beast casting announcements, Disney has revealed its next project. Variety reports that Winnie the Pooh will be the focus of the studio's next live-action movie. According to Variety, "the focus will be on an adult version of the book's Christopher Robin." This idea was pitched to the studio by writer-director Alex Ross Perry (Listen Up Philip), and Disney brought him on to write the adaptation. Still, we all know the really exciting information will come when we learn who's being cast this time around. David Schwimmer's performance as Ross Geller on Friends has likely earned him dibs on the Eeyore role. But, who will play Winnie? And, when can we find out who will play Christopher Robin? Let the waiting game begin. [Variety]
