Gavin O’Connor to Direct Peter Pan Movie Neverland

The Warrior director is off to Never Never Land for the Sony picture originally titled Pan, which has Channing Tatum attached to play the lead. Details are sparse on the script that was written by Billy Ray, who will be enjoying the release of The Hunger Games next week, which he co-wrote. Elsewhere in Never Land, the indie film Pan (scheduled for a 2012 release) actually flipped the script on the magical boy: Aaron Eckhart will play Hook, a retired detective, who chases after Peter — a childlike kidnapper. Can your childhood handle that reimagination?
