Lest you think that Tinkerbell could only be played by some pre-teen sprite…you might be right. But Melissa McCarthy is going to try it anyway in an untitled action-comedy directed by Shawn Levy. The film will be written by Nicholas Stoller, who recently gave us Sex Tape and Muppets Most Wanted.

No details are available, but let’s hope that Melissa McCarthy can bring a little more charm to this role than she did in her recent outings in Tammy or even The Heat. You can’t be messing time-honored favorites like Peter Pan too much.

This will likely be Levy’s next project as he wraps up Night at the Museum 3 (UGH). The combo here is strong, but let’s hope they all make each other work a little harder than they have been, right?

(Deadline)

NBC, Crazy With Peter Pan Fever, Is Giving Us ‘Wendy And Peter’ A Rom-Com Series http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/nbc-crazy-with-peter-pan-fever-is-giving-us-wendy-and-peter-a-rom-com-series/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/nbc-crazy-with-peter-pan-fever-is-giving-us-wendy-and-peter-a-rom-com-series/#comments Thu, 02 Oct 2014 18:22:10 +0000 Penn Collins http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=265724 "Giving us" might not be the right phrase. "Sodomizing us with" seems more appropriate.

Wouldn’t you like to see the untapped chemistry between Wendy Darling and Peter Pan as adults, week after week? NBC is betting you would. Or that now you will because they’re offering it. Wendy and Peter is an upcoming single-camera dramedy/whatever series from NBC, who is also giving us that Peter Pan musical starring Allison Williams as Pan. If Allison Williams is playing Peter in this show, and she’s on-again-off-again with Wendy Darling, then that’s something I could get behind, if only because that sounds really weird.

But it’s probably not. Peter Pan will probably be played by Breckin Meyer or something.

Rashida Jones‘ production company is behind this, which gives it some credibility, but I’m not sure how much credit this thing should be given. Will there be an evil guy name Craig Hook who has looks and money and is constantly trying to steal Wendy away?

Yeah, probably.

With NBC’s Peter Pan musical comes a lot of things. Eye-rolling, dread, self-mutilation…but many of those things are offset by the fact that we get to see Christopher Walken dressed as a pirate. The same Christopher Walken that hid a watch up his ass in a Vietnamese interment camp. Well, he didn’t, but his character in Pulp Fiction did.

Anyway, take a gander at him opposite Allison Williams from HBO’s Girls, who will be playing Pan. This is the same woman who locked herself in a bathroom to masturbate during an art show opening on that show. This is gonna be a hell of a program!

Here’s a bigger version for ya:

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.

Javier Bardem To Play A Non-Captain Hook Pirate In ‘Peter Pan’ Prequel http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/javier-bardem-to-play-a-non-captain-hook-pirate-in-peter-pan-prequel/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/javier-bardem-to-play-a-non-captain-hook-pirate-in-peter-pan-prequel/#comments Tue, 19 Nov 2013 16:31:24 +0000 Penn Collins http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=258035 WHERE'S MENTION OF RUFIO?

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.

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)

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)
