Aaron Eckhart and AnnaSophia Robb will star in a dark re-imagining of “Peter Pan” for Molinarie and Social Capital reports Screen Daily.
In this version, Captain Hook (Eckhart) is a tormented former detective on the trail of a childlike kidnapper. Robb plays Wendy, the lone survivor who leaves an asylum to help in the hunt.
Sean Bean has already been cast as Smee, a chief detective and Hook’s only ally on the force. Ben Hibon directs from a screenplay by Ben Magid, while Renee Tab, Christopher Tuffin, Martin Shore and Brooklyn Weaver are producing.
The project was originally set up at New Line as a directing vehicle for Guillermo del Toro. Shooting kicks off in October in Eastern Europe.
