ScreenDaily reports that Aaron Eckhart (The Dark Knight), Sean Bean (“Game of Thrones”) and AnnaSophia Robb (Soul Surfer) will star in a darker version of the Peter Pan story at New Line/Warner Bros. to which Guillermo del Toro was originally attached to direct.
The site says that “Eckhart plays Hook, the Captain Hook character reimagined as a tormented former detective on the trail of a childlike kidnapper. Robb… will portray Wendy, the lone survivor who leaves an asylum to help in the hunt… Sean Bean has been cast as Smee, the chief detective and Hook’s only ally on the force.”
Ben Hibon will direct from a script written by Ben Magid. Filming is scheduled to start in Eastern Europe this October.
