from RHI Entertainment:
From Emmy winning Executive Producer Robert Halmi, Sr. comes this original prequel to author J.M. Barrie’s classic Peter Pan, now shooting in Italy and Ireland with a cast including Rhys Ifans (Pirate Radio, Notting Hill) as James Hook, Anna Friel (Pushing Daisies) as Captain Elizabeth Bonny, Oscar nominee Bob Hoskins as Smee (who previously played the character in Steven Spielberg’s feature Hook), Raoul Trujillo (Tin Man) and Charlie Rowe (Pirate Radio) as Peter Pan. Neverland is written and directed by Nick Willing (Alice, Tin Man).
Neverland introduces us to a young lad named Peter and his streetwise gang, who are mysteriously transported from turn-of-the-century London into an enchanting parallel world where time stands still and an adventure awaits like nothing you’ve ever seen before. In Neverland, no one ever ages and lost souls have been plucked out of time. The lost boys are soon caught in a war with the man who will become Captain Hook and change the fate of this mystical land forever.
Neverland will premiere in the UK on SKY MOVIES HD and in the US on Syfy (December 4, 2011).
