Film Review Winnie the Pooh
Disney's live-action reboot express keeps chugging along, adding children's classic "Winnie the Pooh" to the lineup.

Deadline reports that the studio plans to make a live-action adaptation of "Pooh," with an indie auteur at the helm. Alex Ross Perry, known for Sundance hit "Listen Up Philip," will shepherd the new feature, though it's unclear if he's simply writing, directing, or both.

According to the trade, the new "Pooh" film will focus on an adult Christopher Robin, who returns to the Hundred Acre Wood and reunites with his childhood pals, including the titular bear. The last time Pooh and co. hit the big screen was in 2011.

The "Pooh" news comes just days after a report suggesting that Disney plans to remake another one of its animated hits, "Mulan," into a live-action flick. Those films follow the planned live-action versions of "Dumbo" and "Beauty and the Beast," as well as the current theatrical smash "Cinderella."
