The 'G.I. Joe' hunk, screenwriter Billy Ray and producer Joe Roth are teaming up to tell the origin of Peter Pan in movie theaters.

Modern versions of "Snow White", "The Wizard of Oz" and "The Hunchback of Notre Dame" are on the way and another classic tale will get new feature film treatment as well. It has just been reported that Channing Tatum will team up with screenwriter Billy Ray and producer Joe Roth to develop new Peter Pan movie.

The pitch package has been offered to studios starting Tuesday, March 1. Details about the project are scarce and it is not clear if Tatum will star or just produce it. The movie is put under the title "Peter Pan Begins" and will tell the origin of Peter Pan, so The Hollywood Reporter says.

Channing Tatum's latest films include "Dear John", "The Dilemma" and "The Eagle". He will next be seen in "Haywire", "The Vow" and "The Son of No One", and is expected to reprise his role in "G.I. Joe: Rise of Cobra" sequel.

Billy Ray is best known for directing and writing "Shattered Glass" and "Breach". He recently has written the adaptation of "The Hunger Games" for Lionsgate and plans to direct "Secreto".

Joe Roth, meanwhile, is one of the men behind 2010 blockbuster "Alice in Wonderland". He is also producing "Oz, the Great and Powerful" with James Franco on the lead role, and "Snow White and the Huntsman" starring Kristen Stewart.
