Peter Pan prequel 'will be screened this year'

15th March 2011

A live action prequel to J. M. Barrie's Peter Pan is to be screened later this year, the producers have confirmed.

Neverland will star Anna Friel, Bob Hoskins and Charles Dance, with the villainous Captain Hook portrayed by Rhys Ifans.

Tinkerbell will be created through CGI, with Keira Knightley set to voice the character.

The all-new story will reveal how Jimmy Hook mentors a gang of young thieves, including Peter (Charlie Rowe), who are transported to Neverland when they steal a magical treasure.

Produced by Sky, the film will be shown on the Sky Movies channels later this year and has been described as 'a bold new take on the original mythology' by the broadcaster.

It will not be the first time Neverland has been created on screen, with Steven Spielberg's 1991 film Hook, starring Robin Williams and Dustin Hoffman, exploring what would happen if Peter grew up and left the magical world.

The character originally made his debut in Barrie's play Peter Pan: Or, the Boy who Wouldn't Grow Up, before being novelised by Barrie in 1911.
