Ahoy, squirts! Quint here with one of the only post-Oscar tidbits to sneak out this morning. This one concerns a film called PAN, which is a sort of bizarro world take on the Peter Pan legend, where Hook is a cop hunting down a psychopathic villain with the supernatural powers of Pan. New Line has picked up this pitch by Ben Magid. I don't know more than that, but that sounds pretty effin' cool to me. However, if they reallllyyy want to make it as badass as that premise suggests, then they have to cast the evil Pan character as a young boy. If it's just some 20 something WB star killing people, then the joy of the twist on the legend is gone. I can't wait to hear more info on this one!!
