"Peter Pan" Sequel Movie Rights Sold
The only official sequel to "Peter Pan" -- "Peter Pan In Scarlet" -- has been sold to the BBC et al to be made into a movie. But shouldn't they make a decent movie out of the original classic first? I love the novel and don't think any of the films have come within a mile of capturing its brilliance. (I know, the play came first. But I think the novel is better, richer, and funnier.) The best stage adaptation I saw combined humans and puppets via Mabou Mines in a heartbreaking, wonderful show called "Peter & Wendy."
