Continuing our recent spree of fairy tale news (earlier, Princess Bride the musical and the first Maleficant poster) the buzz in Hollywoodland is Joe Wright (Hanna, Atonement) is thinking happy thoughts about filming his own spin on the origin of Peter Pan.
The Hollywood Reporter is our source and adds Jason Fuchs (Ice Age: Continental Drift) will write the screenplay while Arrow‘s Greg Berlanti will produce. And much like last year’s Snow White fever, this wouldn’t be the only project about J.M. Barrie’s Pan and his home, Neverland. Currently in the works at Columbia is another Peter Pan origin story, titled Neverland, with Channing Tatum and Joe Roth attached as producers and a screenplay from Billy Ray. Then there’s ABC’s Once Upon a Time which this season introduced Pan and sent half their characters off to Neverland.
So there’s been two Snow White movies, Cinderella is on its way from Disney and Kenneth Branagh; which fairy tale character gets the big screen treatment next?
