Who doesn't love Peter Pan?
Disney is adapting Peter and the Starcatchers for the big screen and has already hired a writer to start working on the screenplay.
The 2004 children's novel is a prequel to the classic story and was recently adapted into a hit Broadway production which was nominated for nine Tony Awards.
Since there have been four sequels published already, this could very well turn into the next big franchise for the studio.
Although this is a rehash of old material, at least we're going to see the titular character embark on a brand new adventure.
