Plot details are still kept under the wraps, but the film will be an origin story that finds main character Peter being brought to Neverland. He will then lead the natives to rebel against the antagonist Captain Hook and his evil pirates.

"Ice Age: Continental Drift" writer Jason Fuchs is already on board to pen the screenplay. Greg Berlanti is producing under his Berlanti Productions banner while Sarah Schechter will oversee for the studio.
