Paddington Bear and Noel FieldingHaving run out of Japanese remakes and sequels, cinema is turning to children's classics with news that a live action Paddington bear film is being discussed.

Now, normally we'd baulk at the idea of such sacred ground being desecrated (and before you accuse us of overreacting have you seen what they've done to Winnie to Pooh?!) but this time could be different with The Sun reporting that The Mighty Boosh and Bunny and the Bull director Paul King is in talks to take the project's helm and stir it firmly in the direction of quality kiddie/adult fare ala Spike Jonze's Where the Wild Things Are.
