Esteemed British filmmaker Hugh Hudson is coming out of retirement to direct a new family movie.

The man behind Chariots of Fire and the flop I Dreamed of Africa stepped back from the spotlight a decade ago, but he has been persuaded to return to the set for Midnight Sun, a film he co-wrote.

The feel-good movie revolves around a child who befriends a stranded polar bear cub, according to Variety.
