The good folks over at Empire have revealed this new teaser poster for the family adventure ‘Paddington,’ which is based on the beloved fictional character from children’s literature created by Michael Bond in 1958. The first ever live action film inspired by Bond’s best-selling books stars Hugh Bonneville (Downton Abbey) as Mr. Brown, Colin Firth (The King’s Speech, A Single Man, Bridget Jones’s Diary) as the voice of Paddington Bear and Nicole Kidman (The Hours, Rabbit Hole, Moulin Rouge!) as the evil taxidermist determined to wreak her revenge.

Produced by David Heyman (producer of all eight of the “Harry Potter” films, Gravity), ‘Paddington’ is being directed by twice BAFTA nominated director Paul King (Come Fly With Me, The Mighty Boosh). The film will open in the UK on November 28th and in the US on December 12th.
The Weinstein Company has reportedly set Ryan Reynolds and is negotiating with Daniel Bruhl to join Helen Mirren in ‘Woman In Gold,’ a fact-based story that Simon Curtis will direct in May. Mirren is pegged to play real-life heroine Maria Altmann, a Jewish WWII survivor who fought the Austrian government to get back several paintings by Gustav Klimt that were pilfered from her family during wartime. Reynolds will play the attorney who took the case despite knowing little about art, and Bruhl will play his adversary.
The ‘Woman In Gold’ script was written by the award winning playwright and screenwriter Alexi Kaye Campbell, and reunites Harvey Weinstein with director Simon Curtis, who most recently helmed ‘My Week With Marilyn’ for The Weinstein Company. Ryan Reynolds just wrapped ‘Mississippi Grind’ for directors Anna Boden and Ryan Fleck, and he is the lead of Atom Egoyan’s ‘The Captive’ and in Tarsem Singh’s ‘Selfless.’ Daniel Bruhl is coming off ‘Rush’ and most recently wrapped the Anton Corbjin-directed ‘A Most Wanted Man.’
