The Kidd here...
It looks like there's no end in sight to the wave of fairy tale movies heading our way (at least SNOW WHITE AND THE HUNTSMAN looks good), so you might as well add Peter Pan to the mix of characters to receive new big screen treatment.
Gavin O'Connor, who directed the critically acclaimed but little seen WARRIOR last year, is in to step behind the camera for NEVERLAND, an origin story of Peter Pan and Captain Hook in a new take on J.M. Barrie's source material. Channing Tatum was rumored to star, but he'll only be serving as a producer, alongside his partner Reid Carolin, having put this idea together, according to Variety. Billy Ray (STATE OF PLAY, THE HUNGER GAMES ) has been tapped to write the script for the timebeing.
This could very well work out if the right Pan and Hook are found to build the foundation for their rivalry, but how many fairy tale flicks will finally be too many before Hollywood decides to move onto some other trend?
