Last week we told you how Channing Tatum, along with his producing partners Reid Carolin and Eric Bromberg, came up with an idea for a 'Peter Pan' origin story that would follow the fun, free-spirited hero in his early days and most likely tell the story of how he and Captain Hook became enemies. At the time Tatum and his crew were pitching the project around Hollywood, and after three different studios bid on it, Sony looks to have walked away with the rights.
The most interesting part of the little blurb in The Hollywood Reporter, though, is news that their pitch envisioned Peter Pan and Captain Hook as brothers, which definitely adds a new twist to the story. In 'Peter Pan' mythology, it's never really been revealed where Captain Hook came from. In J. M. Barrie's novel, the author states, "Hook was not his true name. To reveal who he really was would even at this date set the country in a blaze."
Perhaps that little secret involved Hook and Pan being brothers?
