The 25-year-old actress is currently in talks to star in Goodbye Christopher Robin, a biopic about Winnie the Pooh author A.A.Milne, reports Variety

If she boards the project, she’ll be re-teaming with Star Wars’ Domhnall Gleeson whom she starred with in 2013’s About Time. The 33-year-old is set to play Milne himself, while Robbie is circling the role of his wife Daphne.

Goodbye Christopher Robin will focus on the relationship between Milne and his son Robin, who was the inspiration for the character Christopher Robin in the Winnie the Pooh books.
