Universal Pictures, Columbia Pictures and Revolution Studios are joining forces to create the first live-action version of J.M. Barrie's enduring classic, Peter Pan. Director P.J. Hogan (My Best Friend's Wedding) and producers Lucy Fisher and Douglas Wick (Gladiator, Stuart Little) are teaming to bring all the thrilling adventure and emotion of this timeless tale to the big screen in ways never before imagined or possible.
New cutting-edge technologies will allow director P.J. Hogan to portray the breathtaking and fantastical visuals envisioned in the original material, including Neverland, flying, Tinker Bell (Ludivine Sagnier) and Peter's legendary battles with Captain Hook (Jason Isaacs). And for the first time in any version of the tale, the title role of Peter Pan will be played by a boy (Jeremy Sumpter).
