Dave Barry and Ridley Pierson's bestselling children's book was recently adapted into a Broadway show which received nine Tony Award nominations earlier this year. Walt Disney Pictures (whose publishing division Hyperion released the original book) brought aboard writer Jesse Wigutow to provide the film's screenplay.
The book tells the backstory of the iconic Peter Pan character with Barry and Pierson already working on a series of books set in the same world.
