This actually sounds a little interesting.

Ok. Screen Junkies’ readership probably isn’t too big into musical theater, but that’s only because it’s suffered a lack of Christopher Walken. NBC’s putting a stop to that with by casting him as Captain Hook in a live broadcast performance of a Peter Pan musical.

Why? Because the network saw great numbers from The Sound of Music Live starring Carrie Underwood, and, as we all know, Christopher Walken is just a better version of Carrie Underwood.

The lead role of Peter Pan hasn’t yet been cast, but in form true to the original(s), they had reached out to a female actor in Kristen Bell.

Whoa. Are they trying to make this good or something? Careful NBC, you might actually get a good cast in this thing unless you run, don’t walk to cast someone from a reality singing competition.

A couple years ago, there was a torrent of Peter Pan films coming our way, almost all of which seemed to hang their hat on the “gritty reboot” concept. Today, we haven’t heard much about these films, which means the films managed to scare one another off, or they just realized that Robin Williams was a great Peter Pan and can never be improved upon.

Nonetheless, one Peter Pan origin story remains, and has announced that it’s casting Javier Bardem as Blackbeard, the pirate. The film will be directed by Joe Wright, and allegedly stay close to the source material, as Captain Hook served under the command of Blackbeard.

The film is supposed to be in Batman Begins vein, which is just a convoluted way of saying that it makes a ton of money.

Of course they do.

Ben Hibond has signed on to direct Pan, the dark retelling of "Peter Pan."

Eight-year olds, Dude.

It’s the film Disney doesn’t want you to see (besides those anti-Semitic ones). Ben Hibond (the guy who did the awesome animated sequence in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows) has signed on to direct Pan, the dark retelling of “Peter Pan.” Originally set up for Guillermo del Toro, the film re-imagines the story of Captain Hook as a disgraced detective on the hunt for a childlike kidnapper. God only knows what that sick freak is doing with those Lost Boys. All we know is that in direct opposition of his personal mantra, those children will NEVER speak up.

Sounds like a solid concept to me. I never trusted Peter Pan, what with his sprightly jaunt and soft features. The mischievous smile and that glass eye. You know what, maybe it’s just Sandy Duncan that I don’t trust. (Variety)

Elizabeth Banks to Star in ‘Tink’ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/elizabeth-banks-to-star-in-tink/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/elizabeth-banks-to-star-in-tink/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 She played a slut in The 40-Year-Old Virgin. She played an amateur pornstar in Zach and Miri. Now, actress Elizabeth Banks is taking the next logical step: a live-action version of Tinkerbell, the magical pixie from Walt Disney's Peter Pan.Banks is developing and will star in Tink, a film that “plays with the mischievous nature" of the famous character. Hopefully, "mischievous nature" is code for topless breast play. Besides, a little female nudity will help postpone the inevitable gay-porn parody, Twink. (/Film)
