Banking on Mr. Toad will see Kebbel as Grahame and Headey as his wife Elsie, while Brian Blessed (Flash Gordon) is set to portray Grahame’s friend Frederick James Furnivall. The film will follow the lives of Kenneth, Elsie and their young son Alistair, who struggles with various health problems, and the impact that the Wind in the Willows had on their lives. It will be a mixture of live-action and CGI, with the latter bringing some of Grahame’s characters to live.
Luis Mandoki (Message in a Bottle) is attached to direct Banking on Mr. Toad from a script by Timothy Haas, who is also producing. Adrien Brody is listed among the producers,
