Sony seems intent on giving us Channing Tatum's Peter Pan origin story

03.08.2011
Just last week we heard that Channing Tatum, writer Billy Ray (STATE OF PLAY), and producer Joe Roth (ALICE IN WONDERLAND), were shopping around a Peter Pan origin story called PAN (erroneously titled prior as PETER PAN BEGINS).

Though it seemed that the majority of our readers didn't exactly want to see Channing Tatum all tarted up as the immortal and effeminate boy wonder, a bidding war nevertheless commenced amongst the studios with Sony currently in negotiations to pick up the project.

The pitch for PAN was originally conceived by Tatum and his producing partners Reid Carolin and Eric Bromberg. Along with additional producer Palak Patel, the five further developed the idea, which re-envisions Peter Pan and Captain Hook as brothers.

So what do the studios see in the revitalization of another beloved fantasy tale? Most likely, a potential repeat of producer Joe Roth's success with last year's ALICE IN WONDERLAND. Which of course, is a great idea for people who like making money, and a terrible one for those who like good movies.

Hook

Hook isn't perfect, but there's an entire generation of 20-somethings who grew up with it, and would be willing to go to war against a shit-load of pirates to defend the movie against haters like you.

If you hate Hook, you don't have a heart.

Zack Efron seems more like the Peter Pan choice here.

Hook taught us to never touch the property again. Because you can't outdo Hook.

Seeing Channing Tatum anywhere on this site makes me upset. But when Peter Pan is added, it ruins my day.

Hook is awesome. How dare you.....

Tatum will probably not be playing Pan. Most likely someone else.

The only way I would see Tatum in a Peter Pan movie is if he did The Trial of Captain Hook.

YES, I HIP TO THIS NEWS !

But let's be logical here, people...
YES he will produce, and YES he will probably play in it... BUT NOT AS PAN! He might be his father or, more logically, he'll be HOOK. And I'd like to see that !

I have some idea that at 31-years-old Channing Tatum is NOT planning on donning the green tights. He might be looking at producing the thing, though. Just a hunch.

Dear Channing Tatum

You are a GROWN. ASS. MAN. You are far to fucking old to play a child. Grow, the fuck, up.

Whatever happened to that other PAN project where Peter Pan was a serial killer and Det. Hook was after him?
