An extraordinary re-telling of a time-honoured fairy story, Peter Pan is set to hit the big screen once again in 'Pan'; a tale of how this young boy who never grows up discovered his remarkable powers in the first place.
Hugh Jackman is the fearsome Blackbeard
Ever wondered how Peter Pan became known as Peter Pan in the first place? 'Pan' reveals his lonely beginnings in an orphanage and how he is desperately searching for his mother having only a letter and a strange metal pendant to remember her by. Soon he finds himself kidnapped by brutal flying pirates led by Blackbeard and taken to Neverland - a world of fairies and mermaids, and the place where he befriends a young James Hook who wasn't always so evil himself.
Left behind by his mother at an orphanage, one young rebellious boy always dreamed of finding his mother out there somewhere. That boy was Peter (Levi Miller) and when he is suddenly kidnapped by a flying pirate ship, Pan is whisked off to Never Land by the villainous Blackbeard (Hugh Jackman). There, he strikes up an easy alliance with a young James Hook (Garrett Hedlund) while trapped in a mining colony, and the two make plans to escape. In a land of Pirates, Red Indians and Fairies, and all that Never Land lacks is the boy who holds the magical Pan charm.

50 Shades of Grey may finally have a director, meaning the movie adaption might actually be filmed still.
Director JOE WRIGHT is the latest Hollywood name to be chucked in the pile of potential suitors for the big-screen adaption of EL James' 50 Shades of Grey, with the Anna Karenina stalwart being touted by the Hollywood Reporter as the frontrunner to direct the project.
Pretty much every position on the 50 Shades... movie is still open, with screen-writer Kelly Marcel and producers Michael De Luca and Dana Brunetti the only people to be officially involved with the film. Since the film rights to the book were snapped up by Universal and Focus, a number of big-name, art-house directors were pushed into the frame to direct, with Bennett Miller, Patty Jenkins and Gus Van San often appearing as the top contenders. Now it looks like Brit director Wright, who was already made four films Focus including Atonement and Pride & Prejudice, might be the man for the job.
