Ben Whishaw may soon be gearing up to go fly a kite.
EW has confirmed that Whishaw is in talks to join Mary Poppins Returns, the upcoming sequel to the beloved 1964 Disney musical. Set in Depression-era London, Returns stars Emily Blunt as the practically perfect nanny, who visits a grown-up Jane and Michael Banks after the Banks family experiences a personal loss. Whishaw would play Michael, who is now a father to three children of his own.
