'PETER PAN & WENDY'
JUDE LAW IS CAPTAIN HOOK
I don't, for the life of me, know why would anyone want another adaptation of Peter Pan, especially as all the recent ones were deadly dreary
and ghastly suffocating, but for some reason Hollyweird is making another PETER PAN AND WENDY movie and they don't give a damn what we think. But at least Captain Hook will be good as they've just cast Jude Law in the role. Disney is making a live action remake of their 1953 animated movie with David Lowery at the helm and with the story based on JM Barrie’s novel about the free spirited Peter Pan who takes Wendy Darling and her siblings John and Michael to Neverland, a magical land where children never grow up. Earlier this year it has been announced that British actor Alexander Molony will play Peter Pan, while newcomer Ever Anderson is set to become Wendy.

'THE JUNGLE PRINCE OF DELHI'
TO BECOME NETFLIX TV SERIES
Maybe sounding a bit more fun is new TV series project over at Netflix who have hired Mira Nair to direct an international TV series adaptation of THE JUNGLE PRINCE OF DELHI, the New York Times exposé about the fake royal family of Oudh! As Deadline reports, the movie will bring us the
story of the eccentric royal family of Oudh, deposed aristocrats living in a ruined palace in the Indian capital, claiming to be the heirs to a fallen kingdom. Written by Ellen Barry, it turns out that Prince Cyrus, who claimed to be a member of the Muslim kingdom captured by the British East India company in the 19th century was in fact Mickey Butt, the son of the registrar of Lucknow University.
