Hoffman to Neverland

06.28.2002

Dustin Hoffman has a thing for Peter Pan. He first starred as Captain Hook is Steven Spielberg's Pan flick HOOK. Now he's returning to the tale as he signs on to star alongside Johnny Depp in NEVERLAND. The film follows the life of Peter Pan creator J.M. Barrie (Depp) and the orphans who inspired him to write his classic tale so don't expect Hoffman wearing a metal hook or a handlebar moustache as Capt. Hook. Instead Hoffman will play Charles Frohman, the financial backer and good friend of Barrie. Also starring in NEVERLAND is Kate Winslet and Julie Christie. The Miramax production, to be directed by Marc Foster (MONSTER'S BALL), begins filming later this summer in London. No word on whether Julia Roberts plans to return to the role of Tinkerbell.
