Aaron Eckhart to Hunt Villainous Peter Pan in New Movie

Aaron Eckhart to Hunt Villainous Peter Pan in New MovieSubmit Comment
There are a lot of "Peter Pan" projects in the works, including a prequel that has Channing Tatum attached. Today, ScreenDaily has learned that Warner Bros is developing its own version of the story, which will be much darker than previously seen.

Aaron Eckhart (The Dark Knight) has signed on to play Captain Hook, who has been re-imagined as a tormented former detective on the trail of a childlike kidnapper (Peter Pan). AnnaSophia Robb (Soul Surfer) will portray Wendy, the lone survivor who leaves an asylum to help in the hunt. And Sean Bean ("Game of Thrones") has been cast as Smee, the chief detective and Hook's only ally on the force.

Guillermo Del Toro was once attached to direct the film, but has since been replaced by Ben Hibon, who worked in the animation department on "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1." Filming is scheduled to begin in October in Eastern Europe.

I thought this film originally started out as the story of that California DA prosecuting Michael Jackson for child molestation...

Oh sh*t, someone from the animation department's directing? This better not be a cartoon, cause the story has potential.

This actually sounds like it could be good.

Right, like how Ridley Scott's Robin Hood film was supposed to tell the tale from the sheriff's POV, but we got that other dull as dishwater sh*t last year instead.

Um story has potential

But childrens characters like Peter Pan to be placed in this come on

Buggs Bunny is an ax murderer

"Buggs Bunny is an ax murderer"

Already done. Just look at Ranger.

Personally, I prefer Casper the Cannibal Ghost. Or Clifford the Big Red Rabid Dog.

This has some similarities to Brom's novel retelling of the Peter Pan story -- The Child Thief...which would be a very very awesome movie if someone made it

Or how about Mickey, The Genocidal Mouse....

Oh, wait. That's non-fiction.

HEY... I represent that!

Anyone know if Tinkerbell has done any porn?

I'd split her ass wide open!

"Ugh, I'm Aaron Eckhart, I've got one hand and I was in a Batman movie. Coincidentally, my last name was featured in the first Tim Burton Batman movie. Ugh, I've got one hand."

This sounds sh*thouse. The one with Tatum sounds just as bad, if not, worse.

That has to be one of the worst sounding reimages of a movie I ever heard. What happened? Someone remembered the rumored plot for Crowe's Robin Hood film and thought it would work in this? They should have paid attention to see how that was thumbed down and went back to a more original story.
Lame

Awesome just don't hire a lame actor to do Peter Pan, and Bean, Eckhart and Robb are fine additions. The animation scene in HPDH was great.
