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

By AMC March 28, 2012

"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.
