Mr Benn heads to the big screen

A live-action, big screen family movie based on 1970’s animated TV series Mr Been is in the works.

A script is bring written by Hamish McColl, who co-wrote Paddington, and the project counts Harry Potter producer David Barron among its producers.

Mr Benn was shown on the BBC in the early 1970s and followed the bowler-hatted Mr Benn as he found himself in a world of adventure and magic when he discovered a portal in his local costume shop.

According to Screen International, the film will follow the same lines, and see Mr Benn facing the possibility of losing everything until he stands up for himself and proves that adventures can happen to anyone.
