Too much stuff leaking on this. Could use a little more secrecy...
Fairy tale TV gets crowded as Peter Pan's Lost Boys get a series | Blastr
It's about time the Lost Boys got some screen time, and we're not talking about Kiefer Sutherland and Corey Haim. We're referring to the group of bandits who appear in J.M. Barrie's classic Peter Pan. The group of unruly misfits are getting their own show.
The series is called The League of Pan, and it follows in the footsteps of Grimm, Once Upon a Time and the upcoming Beauty and the Beast. It's another modernized take on characters pulled from popular children's stories.
The League of Pan is based on an idea from writer Brian McCauley Johnson. It's a re-imagining of Barrie's original story that takes place 10 years after the Lost Boys left Neverland. It will have all the fairy-tale elements we love, paired with more serious themes.
Over time, the Lost Boys have been portrayed in many different ways. In the first incarnation of the play they were listed as Tootles, Nibs, Slightly, Curly, and the Twins. In Steven Spielberg's 1991 adaptation Hook, we were introduced to Rufio, Thud Butt, Pockets, Ace, Don't Ask, Too Small, Latchboy and No Nap. We wonder which lineup the writers will use for this show?
Imagine TV and 20th TV is currently looking for a co-writer and showrunner to help produce the pilot.
I think I was putting this in fantasy, but this is more apropo.
Ok. Good to know.
Producer Neal Moritz Turning ‘Sleeping Beauty’ Into A Stalker Comedy | Geeks of Doom
Now that I think of it...NO presence at all for Bryan Singer's Jack the Giant Killer. Outside of a trailer a few months back there has been NO word on that one. Ruh-Roh.As expected, we’re in the middle of a rush of fairy tale-inspired movies. From Snow White and the lands of Oz, to Peter Pan and Jack and the Beanstalk, they’ve all got projects on the way. Most of them have multiple new takes on the stories coming from various studios.
Another fairy tale, Sleeping Beauty, also has new versions of the story on the the way, but producer Neal Moritz wants to take it in a completely different direction.
Moritz wants to take the Sleeping Beauty fable and turn it into a psycho stalker comedy. Why not!
In his version, a man would accidentally wake up the long-slumbering woman. But when he does she becomes infatuated with him, and no matter where he goes or what he does, she follows closely behind. Mike Gagerman and Andrew Waller are currently working on a first draft of the script.
We're Going to Get a Look at Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters Soon | Shock Till You Drop
You remember Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters, yes? The horror-action-fantasy starring Jeremy Renner and Gemma Arterton was supposed to open earlier this year, however, its release was pushed back a full year to January 11, 2013.
We have learned today that a trailer from Paramount is just around the corner, clocking in at just over two minutes. So, no teaser, just a full trailer.
The film, directed by Tommy Wirkola (Dead Snow), stars Renner, Arterton, Famke Janssen and Peter Stormare.
The story take place 15 years after the siblings' incident at the gingerbread house. The two are now specialized bounty hunters looking to put down the cackling black-hat set.
