Deadline is reporting that Colin Farrell is in talks to join the cast of Saving Mr. Banks. The movie will tell the story of how Walt Disney spent 14 years trying to convince author P.L Travers to let him adapt her book Mary Poppins into a film. He of course succeeded but she was never happy with the film, especially the animated sequences. Farrell would play Travers father who died when she was seven.
Farrell will join Tom Hanks as Walt Disney and Emma Thompson as P.L Travers. No word yet on when this film will be released.
