ANN ARBOR NEWS: Screenwriter with Flint roots reflects on bringing ‘Mary Poppins Returns’ to life

FLINT, MI-- Hollywood screenwriter David Magee spent the first act of his life in Flint.

The Flint native, best known for award-winning films like “Mary Poppins Returns” and “Life of Pi,” got his start acting in community theater here in Vehicle City.

His interest in the theater was sparked while watching his father perform with the Flint Community Players. Now, Magee has watched the stories he’s written come to life on the screen, but his goal wasn’t always becoming a screenwriter.
