Peter Pan Sequel

The fact that the film rights to Peter Pan In Scarlet have been sold won't raise too many eyebrows. After the intensive publicity campaign that book received, it would have been pretty shocking if someone hadn't plucked it for a big-screen adaptation. But who did this plucking? Not Hollywood.
The property will be developed by the U.K. Film Council, which aims to promote British moviemaking; BBC Films, the movie arm of state broadcaster BBC; and Headline Pictures, a company co-founded by former BBC executive Mark Shivas.
This, to my mind, is for the best. However, I wouldn't mind seeing Jason Isaacs getting a little more Pan-related work with this newest venture. Woof.

Thanks to Cinematical for the link.

That was exactly what I thought when I first read about this in PW. It would have been shocking if this book wasn't made into a film.
