Peter Pan: The Story That Never Grew Up

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.
