Margot Robbie and Domhnall Gleeson May Reunite For GOODBYE CHRISTOPHER ROBIN
Suicide Squad star Margot Robbie and Star Wars: The Force Awakens' Domhnall Gleeson shared the screen together in the excellent time travel romance About Time, and now it appears they might share it once more in a biopic about the creator of beloved children's character Winnie The Pooh. Variety reports that Robbie is in early negotiations to join Goodbye Christopher Robin, which already has Gleeson on board.
Simon Curtis (My Week With Marilyn) is directing, and the story "revolves around 'Winnie the Pooh' creator A.A. Milne and the relationship between him and his son Robin. Robin, who initially had a difficult relationship with his father, served as the inspiration for the character of Christopher Robin. Pooh was named after Robin’s teddy bear. The real Robin’s toys also lent their names to other Winnie the Pooh characters such as Tigger, Eeyore and Piglet."
If the deal goes through, Robbie will play Milne's wife. I thought she and Gleeson had good chemistry in About Time, so I'm sure they'll be a believable couple here.
