In 2003, it's finally happening... A live-action Peter Pan movie based on the novel. With young Jeremy Sumpter with the role of Peter and Jason Issacs as Hook, written and directed by P.J. Hogan, (My Best Friend's Wedding) this promises to be an interesting catch for Peter fans. I've read some of the reviewed script, and it sounds very good... I just hope Jeremy can fill the part of Peter as nicely as we all hope he can. The movie is being jointly produced by Universal, Columbia, and Revolution studios.
I can't honestly say I'm not worried about this upcoming movie. I've never seen Jeremy Sumpter in anything before, actually, I've never heard of him prior to this. I am a bit concerned about how he's going to handle the role; Peter is not an easy part to play, that's for sure, he's an extremely complex character. I just hope Hogan knows what he's doing! *crosses her fingers*
Interesting Fact: Jason Issacs, playing Captain Hook, is also in the upcoming movie "Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets" as Draco Malfoy's father, Lucius Malfoy. Cool, huh? heh ^_^
