Warrior helmer Gavin O’Connor is in talks to direct Sony Pictures’ Neverland, reports Variety.
The movie, to be produced by Joe Roth (Snow White and the Huntsman, Alice in Wonderland), Palak Patel, Channing Tatum and Reid Carolin, is an origin story about J.M. Barrie’s characters Peter Pan and Captain Hook.
The trade adds that Tatum, Carolin and Eric Bromberg came up with the idea and brought it to Roth Films and screenwriter Billy Ray for the group to develop as a pitch.
Tatum will not be starring in the film.
