PAGE TO SCREEN
Peter Pan, the boy who never grew up, retains his magic….and is heading back to the big screen in several new projects.
Joe Wright, director of Atonement, is contemplating a Peter Pan origins story, from a script by Jason Fuchs, writer of Ice Age: Continental Drift.
Of course, popular film versions have included Disney‘s 1953 animation; Hook, the Spielberg sequel; And Finding Neverland, the 2004 film about JM Barrie, Scottish author and playwright who wrote the story.
Other Pan projects in production now include Peter and the Starcatchers, a prequel written by Book Report pal Dave Barry and directed by Gary Ross of the Hunger Games ; and Pan, yet another origins story developed by Channing Tatum.
The classics keep flying high. For all books, all the time, tune into The Book Report.
