Joe Wright to Direct One of the Many Upcoming Peter Pan Movies

Joe Wright

There are so many Peter Pan flicks in the works that we're beginning to lose count. Disney has the Gary Ross-directed prequel Peter and the Starcatchers, Sony is working on Pan with Channing Tatum producing, and a few years ago there was even talk of adapting the classic into a modern crime story, with Captain Hook as a detective pursuing a murderous Peter Pan. Warner Bros. may wind up beating them all to the theaters, as Joe Wright is in talks to direct an origin story, or as The Hollywood Reporter puts it, "give Pan the Batman Begins treatment." We don't have many details on the plot, but with the man who directed Pride & Prejudice, Atonement, and Anna Karenina at the helm, we wouldn't be surprised to see Keira Knightley slip into Pan's tights.
