Today for us is all about children who don’t want to grow up and be despicable pirates.
We are very pleased to announce Peter and Wendy, a two hour drama based on the classic novel Peter Pan by J.M. Barrie. Made in partnership with ITV and produced by Headline Pictures as reported in Deadline Hollywood today.
Joining us aboard is Academy Award nominated Stanley Tucci (Julie and Julia, Devil Wears Prada) as Hook, guest starring pop sensation Paloma Faith as Tinker Bell and with Laura Fraser (Breaking Bad, A Knight’s Tale) as Mrs Darling. Handling the script and bringing this classic in to the modern world is the BAFTA winning writer Adrian Hodges (My Week with Marilyn, The Musketeers). The man behind the camera is another BAFTA winner too, director Diarmuid Lawrence (Little Dorrit, Mapp & Lucia). So it is a superb cast and crew we set sail with.
Who ever wanted to grow up anyway?
Peter & Wendy will be produced by Headline Pictures (Quartet, The Invisible Woman) and executive produced by our own Charlotte Walls and Gideon Lyons.
