Corden, Byrne In Talks For “Peter Rabbit”

James Corden and Rose Byrne are in negotiations to star in the live-action/CG hybrid adaptation of Beatrix Potter’s famed story “Peter Rabbit” at Sony Pictures.

Will Gluck is directing the project described as a modern interpretation centering on the rivalry between mischievous young hopper Peter Rabbit and Mr. McGregor who is trying to keep a rabbit-free garden.

Corden would voice Peter while Byrne would take one of the live-action roles. Gluck, who is re-writing Rob Lieber’s script, will produce with Zareh Nalbandian.
