'Peter and the Starcatcher' Film in the Works
Playbill.com has reported that Disney will make a film version of Peter and the Starcatchers, but that this version will be based on the Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson novel rather than the play, which is also based on the novel. The screenplay will be written by Jesse Witgutow, who wrote the screenplay for It Runs in the Family. The Playbill article says, "The film is a separate entity from the critically praised Broadway production, which dropped the 's' from its title and goes by Peter and the Starcatcher."
