|Peter and the Starcatchers|
Gary Ross, the director of the wildly popular first installment of The Hunger Games is set to tackle another beloved children's tale, though with a twist. Ross is attached to Peter and the Starcatchers, a prequel to J.M. Barrie's Peter Pan. Based on a series of books that were also turned into a play, the movie about the adventures of the orphan Peter is planned for 2013. While I admit Disney's cartoon version of Peter Pan is not my favorite film, I love the live action versions, Finding Neverland, and Syfy's recent miniseries Neverland. The story of a boy who never grows up refuses to die. Hunger Games fans may be disappointed Ross won't be back to direct Catching Fire, but perhaps they can find comfort in a new spin on an old favorite.
