Channing Tatum Attached to ‘Peter Pan Begins’

Channing Tatum attached to star in Peter Pan BeginsChanning Tatum is attached to star in Peter Pan Begins, which is coming from writer Billy Ray and producer Joe Roth.

A pitch for the project has gone out to various studios. The screenplay will focus on the origins of the very first Lost Boy, Peter Pan. No other story details have been given at this time. The film will be the latest in a recent string of projects based on classic literature, others of which include Red Riding Hood, Snow White and the Huntsman, and Oz: The Great and Powerful.

At this time, no studio has made a bid on Peter Pan Begins. So whether or not we will see Channing Tatum in green tights is anybody's guess.

Billy Ray recently wrote the The Hunger Games adaptation for LionsGate.

Peter Pan Begins was released in 2015.

      @Travis-Speegle - made it up, man. Just put a Batman Begins spin on the whole Peter Pan thing. Their idea of Hook being Peter's brother is far worse though :P

          So, in this movie, we'll see that Capt'n hook found Peter in delinquent cell (since Peter is on a quest to have fun forever), then bails him out and teaches Peter to fight, but when he wants Peter to join piracy and end fun forever, he fights off the pirates and creates a "tight" identity in his secret Hollowed Tree, enlisting the help of his fairy, Tinker Bell, to supply him with pixie dust so he can fly and rescue all the wayward boys of the world from the evil parent syndicate . . .

          Yeah . . . .

          Someone is "second-star-to-the-right and straight-on-till-morning" on this one! :P

                  haha. Tatum as Peter Pan really? I THINK the idea here is to go for a darker version. God I hope not.

                        Peter Pan Begins.... lmfao... I instantly thought of Batman Begins, then crossed the 2 ideas in my head and came up with a big question mark. This has 'ugh' written all over it. Fail.
