Live-Action Peter Pan Movie in the Works

It must be true what they say about Peter Pan never getting old. Disney is developing a live-action film based on J.M. Barrie’s Boy Who Wouldn’t Grow Up and has enlisted David Lowery to direct and co-write the script, EW has confirmed.

Lowery recently helmed the studio’s upcoming remake of the 1977 movie Pete’s Dragon. He wrote the remake with Toby Halbrooks, who is reprising his duties for the Peter Pan movie, and James Whitaker is also returning to produce. The project is in the early stages of development.

Created by Scottish novelist and playwright Barrie in the early 1900s, Peter Pan has appeared in many screen incarnations, most famously in Disney’s own 1953 animated film. Other takes on the character include Steven Spielberg’s Hook in 1991, P.J. Hogan’s Peter Pan in 2003, and Joe Wright’s Pan last year. (Peter also hit the small screen not long ago in NBC’s Peter Pan Live.)

Disney’s Peter Pan project comes as the latest live-action movie revisiting one of the studio’s beloved animated tales, with previous examples including Alice in WonderlandMaleficentCinderella, and The Jungle Book. Others in the works include Beauty and the BeastDumboMulan, and Tink (a Tinker Bell movie).

Lowery’s other directing credits include Ain’t Them Bodies Saints and St. Nick.
