The Nanny McPhee star has been approached by Potter publishers to help reintroduce the stories to a new generation of kids to coincide with its landmark anniversary next year (11).

In an interview with late night U.S. TV host Craig Ferguson, she reveals, "I had a lovely little job offer. You know, Peter Rabbit, Beatrix Potter, he is 110 next year and they asked me to write a new story about Peter Rabbit, so I'm going to take him to Scotland."

Author Potter first introduced the popular animal character to readers in 1902 with The Tale of Peter Rabbit. He subsequently appeared in five more installments between 1904 and 1912.
