Quote:
The beloved children’s character will star in a film mixing live-action with a computer-generated bear.

The project is the brainchild of David Heyman, producer of the Harry Potter franchise, who has spent several years bringing the film to fruition.

“Paddington Bear is a universally loved character, treasured for his optimism, his sense of fair play, and his perfect manners - and, of course, for his unintentional talent for comic chaos,” said Heyman.

In a sign that the film might be quirkier than the average children’s offering, it will be directed by Paul King, whose previous credits include the anarchic television series The Mighty Boosh and Come Fly With Me, the airport comedy starring David Walliams and Matt Lucas.

Heyman is partnering with StudioCanal, the French production company, and the release date is likely to be 2014.

I wonder if they'll go 3D. I wonder what marmalade sandwiches will look like in 3D ;)

I came into this thread expecting the usual "NOOOOO" fest, and it's unusually deprived f that.


Then I see David Heyman's attached and all makes sense.

I'm intrigued! And I'm also wondering why knowing this is in British hands makes me feel less negative than usual...

When I was little, I remember there was a Paddington Bear TV show on HBO that I loved. Always wanted to eat marmalade. I think doing a hybrid film is a really good choice for this-- I look forward to seeing it.

I thought I was the only one that remembered the TV show! Being a fan of that, as well as the books by Michael Bond, I'm definitely looking forward to this!

Would be fun if Paddington could appear as he used to, rather then being a CGI bear.

I'm really sorry to do this, but I feel like I have to!

:facepalm:

Really? I'm getting a little tired of all these live-action/CGI hybrids.

I think it's too early to prejudge it, purely because of the filmmaking technique. Also, considering how much care David Heyman took to have Harry Potter respect JK Rowling's vision, I imagine he will do the same with Paddington. This is a British icon and the public will have his (and the director's) head, if they screw it up.

I was surprised at how well-received this movie was back when it came out. Haven't seen it yet, but I should try renting it one of these days.
