Channing Tatum wants to tell a Peter Pan story, son

Actor Channing Tatum probably immediately makes you think of a magical effeminate flying boy, right?

If he truly does, maybe you should seek help. But regardless of your own psychological requirements, Tatum is actually pursuing a PETER PAN project at the moment. Perhaps it's some unorthodox way to satisfy his curious affinity for hats.

Heat Vision says that Tatum, along with screenwriter Billy Ray (STATE OF PLAY, upcoming THE HUNGER GAMES) and producer Joe Roth (ALICE IN WONDERLAND), are currently shopping some kind of origin story about author's J.M. Barrie's mischievous (and conveniently public domain) airborne lad.

No concrete details are available, but the project, titled PETER PAN BEGINS, would be a starring vehicle for Tatum. However that would work.

A modernized horror version of the Pan tale has also been in the works for several years, once with Guillermo del Toro attached.

This article wins points for the phrase "mischievous airborne lad". Hopefully, Jenna Dewan will play a slutty Tinkerbell.

I'm a fan of Tatum and I don't care if I get thumbs down.

I'm willing to give this a chance.

Peter Pan Begins? Really Hollywood?

Isn't Tatum a little old to be playing Peter Pan? Can I assume the Pan and the Lost Boys will settle their dispute with Cap'n Hook and the pirates over a dance-off (in 3D, I'm guessing).

I can see it now

In a dystopian future where children are forced to grow up in factories and labor camps, one soldier has had enough. Together with his elite unit, The Lost Boys, they set out to find the mythical planet of Neverland where the opressed children of Oronium 9 can live in youth forever. Waging his own private war against the diabolical Admiral Hook, the fate of a civilization rests in his hands. Coming next summer Channing Tatum stars in Codename Pan. Rated Pg-13.
