    Official 'Peter Pan' sequel takes film flight

    Trio snap up 'Peter Pan' sequel rights

    Headline, BBC, Film Council buy ticket for Neverland

    LONDON Film rights to "Peter Pan in Scarlet," the official sequel to J.M. Barrie's "Peter Pan," have been sold to Headline Pictures, BBC Films and the U.K. Film Council.

    The novel, written by Geraldine McCaughrean, was published this October. It was commissioned by the Great Ormond Street Children's Hospital, which owns the copyright to Peter Pan.

    "We could not be happier than to be partnering with Headline Pictures, the U.K. Film Council and BBC Films," said Char-les Denton, exec director of Great Ormond Street's charity arm.

    "We have no doubt that they will help to build on the ongoing success of Geraldine's McCaughrean's brilliant sequel, which will continue to raise vital funds for Great Ormond Street in the way J.M. Barrie had intended when he gifted the copyright to Peter Pan to the hospital."

    Headline Pictures, based in Newcastle and London, is run by producers Stewart Mackinnon and Mark Shivas and writer Kevin Hood.

    In "Peter Pan in Scarlet," Wendy, her brothers and the Lost Boys have all grown up to become respectable adults. But when Wendy dreams that Neverland is in trouble, they must all find a way back to save the day.

    Re: Official 'Peter Pan' sequel takes film flight

    I read the book a couple of weeks ago. It is good but very slow to get going. Once it does however, the magic of Peter Pan is back and it should make for an interesting movie. Now however there is are two sequels, one by Disney "Return to Neverland" the unofficial sequel and "Peter Pan in Scarlett" the " official sequel. That plus the two Prequels which are both excellent and I am hoping for a third, gives Peter Pan fans a lot of reading to do, plus movies and more. Sweet!

    This should be interesting since a live action film came out in 2003, Disney is re-releasing the 1953 animated film in March, The Tinkerbelle Movie comes out in 2007, plus that book series that is already out - lots of attention for Neverland!

    The Tinkerbell Movie is apparently in trouble and may be pushed back to late in the year or even 2008 or 2009.

    If more Disney "Cheap-quels" tried as hard as 'Return To Neverland' not to suck so bad. I wouldn't mind more Classic animated sequels.

    I actually almost prefer Return to Neverland to Peter Pan... almost

    But Enough with the sequels! Let's follow Uncle Walt's vision, NEW DIRECTIONS, NEW STORIES, NEW CHARACTERS, Let's INNOVATE!
