After winning the Academy Award for Best Adapted Screenplay, Sarah Polley is obviously in demand for her next project. It appears that not only is she in talks for her biggest film yet, she might be working within the hallowed halls of Disney.
According to Deadline, Polley is being eyed to direct a live-action version of Bambi. The movie is said to be a musical, with songs from Kacey Musgraves. The screenplay is from Micah Fitzerman-Blue and Noah Harpster, so there are pieces in place. If Polley signs on, she’ll be about as high class a director as Disney could ever get for this project, coming off of that Oscar win for Women Talking. Stay tuned.
