Finding Neverland The Musical may have just landed its leading lady!
We hear Gwyneth Paltrow has been offered the role of Sylvia Llewelyn Davies — the woman whose children inspired J.M. Barrie to write Peter Pan — aka the part Kate Winslet made famous in the movie.
The character is British and the play will be debuting in London's West End. So, if our American Gwynie takes the job, she better brush off on that accent!
Originally there were talks of Johnny Depp reprising his role as Barrie, but the part has been given to a the guy who "workshopped" the show (like Megan Hilty in SMASH).
Katie Holmes also auditioned for the part of Sylvia… but something must have come up.
