Deadline is reporting that Warner Bros is working on “Pan,” a fresh take on the classic Peter Pan story. Written by Jason Fuchs (Ice Age: Continental Drift), the story will center on an orphan that’s taken to a magical world, who becomes a hero as he saves the natives and helps them defeat Captain Hook and his band of pirates.

The studio is said to be negotiating with director Joe Wright, who has recently become known for period dramas like “Anna Karenina,” “Atonement,” and “Pride & Prejudice.” No release date has been set yet for this latest incarnation of the J.M. Barrie classic, nor are any actors attached.

Who would you cast as Peter, Wendy, and Captain Hook if you were introducing the characters to a new generation?

    oh god. another classic story with actual subtext to get the lord of the rings treatment, same as alice in wonderland and the wizard of oz.

    The book, which this is derived from, is public domain.

    Sounds like somebody listened to the Max Landis episode of the Nerdist podcast.

    Yes I thought Disney owned Pan, good point Pablo. Obviously Disney sold the rights? You can’t beat the Disney cartoon, haha.

    Could this be based on the book Peter & the Starcatchers? I hope so…

    I kind of like the evil Peter Pan and sort-of-good Hook from Once Upon a Time ^^ Other than that I would love if they went into the direction of the film Hook, which is my favorite Peter Pan version.
