IMAGE EXPO: New Projects Revealed From Rucka, Simone, Aaron and More
Director Joe Wright’s next act involves a trip to Neverland.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the Anna Karenina and Hanna filmmaker is in talks to direct a new take on Peter Pan for Warner Bros., with Arrow‘s Greg Berlanti producing and Jason Fuchs set to write the script. Little else is known beyond the Peter Pan premise, and the promise that this version of the tale will give Pan “the Batman Begins treatment.”
Wright’s take on Neverland is just the latest of many Peter Pan projects in development. Channing Tatum’s Pan is developing at Columbia Pictures, while Hunger Games director Gary Ross has been attached to adapt Peter and the Starcatchers for Disney for some time now.
