'Peter Pan Begins' Pitch Takes Flight With Channing Tatum Attached

Heat Vision says:

Actor Channing Tatum, screenwriter Billy Ray and producer Joe Roth are seeking to tell the origin of Peter Pan with a pitch package that went out to studios Tuesday. Not much is known in the way of details, but the project carries the title Peter Pan Begins.

The pitch is the latest in the newest Hollywood development trend that has execs moving beyond comic books and toys and on to classic literature reading lists -- and no one is more at the forefront of this lit movement than Roth.

I don't see what the big deal is with Channing Tatum but people keep casting him in movies. As for the Peter Pan story, the only good Peter Pan story told was Hook. Aside from that I'm just not a big fan of the character.

I did enjoy Hook. "Bangarang Rufio! Bangarang Pan!" lol Anyways, I enjoy the original story as's just it's a dead horse that has been beaten so many times over. An origins story could be cool though. Don't really think I've seen an origins story.

That being said..."Peter Pan Begins"?! Really? That's the title they came up with? How stupid. It's digging itself a hole from the start pretty much as that title is just going to remind people of Batman Begins, setting this movie up to expectations that I'm sure it won't meet.

Well, at least they didn't cast some flash in the pan, hearth throb actor that has the acting ability of Vin Diesel.....oh wait. :/

Hook was by far my favorite adaptation of the Peter Pan story (of course the Disney Cartoon is good to), but the last attempt at live action was just terrible. I couldn't get into it at all.

I'm cautiously excited for this movie though. I love the Peter Pan story and have been waiting for a really good adaptation to come around again. I can't say I'm impressed with the title or Channing Tatum, but I'm willing to give it a shot.
