Set to be an origin story for the rivalry between Peter Pan and Captain Hook, Neverland was thought up by Tatum and Reid, with both committing to producing the film. They have also enlisted the help of Joe Roth, the producer behind Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland. Gavin O'Connor, last seen directing Warrior, will take on director's duties and will supervise the next draft of Billy Ray's screenplay.
Tatum's star is on the rise thanks to his many appearances this year, namely the leading roles he has in both The Vow and 21 Jump Street, while O'Connor's success with Warrior shows he's got a lot to bring to the story of the boy who never grows up.
But the question is, after Red Riding Hood, Alice in Wonderland, Snow White and the Huntsman, Mirror Mirror, Jack the Giant Killer and Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters, will the audience actually want another revisionist childhood fairytale?
