UK to Produce Brand-New "Peter Pan" Sequel

Geraldine McCaughrean’s "Peter Pan in Scarlet," the first "official" sequel to J.M. Barrie’s "Peter Pan" is (eventually) about to begin production as a movie. And get this: The British government is the body backing the flick!

From Reuters: "Two U.K. goverment-backed firms have joined forces with an independent producer to secure the film and television rights to "Peter Pan in Scarlet," the recently penned, officially sanctioned sequel to J.M. Barrie’s classic children’s tale "Peter Pan," they announced Monday.

The decision to grant the consortium rights to Geraldine McCaughrean’s "Peter Pan In Scarlet" was made by the Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity Trustees (GOSHCC), the beneficiary of Barrie’s will." (Full article here.)

Interesting, I suppose. Anyone out there read "Scarlet" yet?
