Gavin O'Connor And Channing Tatum Go To 'Neverland'

"Warrior" director Gavin O'Connor has found his next project and it's a supposedly fresh take on the Peter Pan story, titled "Neverland." Channing Tatum is locked into the project as a producer alongside Reid Carolin under Iron Horse Productions with Joe Roth and Palak Patel under Roth Films. Gavin O'Connor is signed on as director and will be helping out with polishing a new version of the script.

It's been reported that Channing Tatum would be playing Peter Pan's arch nemesis Captain Hook in this production, but that's nothing more than a rumor at the moment. However, Tatum is fairly close to the project since Eric Bromberg and himself first presented the idea of the story to Billy Ray, who eventually wrote the rough script they're working with now.

There's a couple of questions that always come up when it pertains to a Peter Pan project, and the first is whether or not it'll be a live-action or animated feature. Second, if Tatum were suddenly interested to take on a major role in this production it could be done. After all, the actor does have some time in his schedule to be in the movie if he wanted to.

    This reply if for CMO175: Wow... I had to comment on your posting. The fact that you believe Batman vs. Superman would beat Captain America 3 strikes me as uninformed. Zack Snyder is a visual master... but his stories and pacing and color palate are truly lacking in the development process. Superman simply had no soul... the man and the movie. And the silly destruction of the city and the landscape IS out of character with what Superman is. How many people died as Superman himself crashed through buildings and caused explosions throughout the movie? Superman would NEVER allow that to happen, but Zack Snyder and his writer would... and did. And it was a boring, stupid mess. And he WILL bring that soulless idiocy to Batman vs. Superman. Captain America, on the other hand? Winter Soldier is the most exciting super hero movie since The Dark Knight. And I, a 55 year old long time comic book universe fan, WILL be in line for Captain America 3! I will have to be convinced -- a LOT -- to turn around and spend my money, and time, in a Zack Snyder Batman vs. Superman. Zack Snyder stole a bit of my soul -- and I hate him for it -- when he introduced zombies that can run down a car. If zombies existed, in a Zack Snyder universe, and they move FASTER than any human... then he has introduced a horror universe in which man has NO hope of survival! Mankind cannot survive in this universe where vicious zombies have the speed to overwhelm any human survival situation... and that vision kills the suspense in a zombie movie. Where is the hope? That does not exist in a Zack Snyder movie. That man is Sucker Punching all of us. I'm not taking it any more. There are too many other fan friendly directors of fantasy movies for me to follow. I only hope that Disney/Marvel will hire the same brother director team to direct Captain America 3. That will be a smart move, indeed. RLJ
