Not much is known about this project so far, so look upon this as more of a food for thought/fodder for discussion sorta snippet.
THIS piece in THR says that producer Joe Roth (Tim Burton's ALICE IN WONDERLAND, KNIGHT AND DAY, Sam Raimi's upcoming OZ, THE GREAT AND POWERFUL), scripter Billy Ray (VOLCANO, FLIGHTPLAN), and Duke in Stephen Sommers' G.I. JOE movie are shopping around a package. Essentially, it's an origin story of the Peter Pan character, called PETER PAN BEGINS.
It's been a few years since we had a large-scale PETER PAN movie, the most recent efforts include P.J. Hogan's unmemorable PETER PAN back in 2003...
...and Steven Spielberg's belabored HOOK in 1991.
Let's hope this one, if made, fares better.
I'm not altogether captivated by the title PETER PAN BEGINS, although I suppose it'll sell better than...say...PETER PAN FINISHES.
