19. Goodbye Christopher Robin – Domhnall Gleeson
Next year looks set to be a pretty busy one for Bill Weasley actor Domhnall Gleeson, who has no less than six films currently scheduled for release in 2017.
One of those movies is My Week with Marilyn director Simon
Curtis’ new flick Goodbye Christopher Robin, a historical biopic of writer and
Winnie the Pooh creator A. A. Milne. Gleeson will tackle the role of the A. A.
Milne, while Margot Robbie will play his wife Daphne and Kelly Macdonald will
feature as the Milne family’s nanny Olive. This will be the second time the
Suicide Squad star and the critically acclaimed Irish actor have starred together
in a film, the first being 2013 Brit rom-com About Time.
The film will focus on the Milne family, including their son Christopher Robin Milne who inspired the Winnie the Pooh books and characters, as they cope with the adverse side of the success and fame that the no-pants-wearing bear brought into their lives.
