Joe Wright hoping to take flight with 'Peter Pan' adaptation
Joe Wright is poised to join the increasingly crowded airspace between Hollywood and Neverland. The Atonement filmmaker is in talks with Warner Bros. to direct an origin movie about Peter Pan, J.M. Barrie’s beloved boy who never grew up. Sources confirm Deadline’s report that Jason Fuchs (Ice Age: Continental Drift) has penned a script and Greg Berlanti (Arrow) will produce.
The Warner Bros. movie is just one of three high-profile Pan projects. Channing Tatum and Joe Roth have their own version in-development at Columbia, and Disney is in business with Gary Ross to make Peter and the Starcatchers.
