?Goodbye Christopher Robin? secures financing

May 7, 2010

British producers of "Goodbye Christopher Robin," a bitter-sweet about a little boy who features as the best friend and confidant of Winnie the Pooh in the classic children's book 'Winnie the Pooh', have secured financing for making of a movie to be shot in September.

Nick Hurran is to direct the movie while Isle of Man and Manx Film Fund are financing the project. Yan Fisher, Rene Sheridan, Simon Vaughan and Nuala Barton are producing it.

Simon Vaughan, executive producer for the telepic "A Bear Called Winnie" made in 2004, has written the script based on a story penned by A. A. Milne about him and his family moving away from London to the country side to avoid the pressure of living in London.
