Seriously? Pan and Hook as brothers?

That’s the latest rumour about ”Pan” (which I like better than Peter Pan Begins), in which Channing Tatum is said to be starring as the boy who refuses to grow up.

I’m not sure yet how I feel about it. So Captain Hook’s real name is James Pan? Ugh. I just can’t see it. No, so far I’m not feeling it. Apparently, they’re shopping around the pic and Sony Pictures paid 1 mil for the rights.

>Channing Tatum as Peter Pan and Kristen Stewart as Snow White

Okay, so this fairy tale business is taking over Hollywood.

What’s up with the Channing Tatum-as-Peter Pan rumour? I certainly don’t get a fairy tale vibe from the guy. That might be because he looks more muscle than brain. That and because Peter Pan is supposed to be a little boy?

The film, allegedly called Peter Pan Begins because it’s so bad-ass, supposedly explores the origins of the Peter Pan story. I’m still hoping Tatum won’t get to play the title role. Maybe he could star as a Lost Boy and actually get lost? Much better.

In other news in fairy land, Kristen Stewart reportedly signed a deal to star as Snow White in the Disney picture Snow White and the Huntsman. Although the actress initially had her rep deny any involvement in the movie, the producer broke the news on his Twitter account as you do. Darn it. But who knows, maybe she’ll surprise us. -coughcough- She will star opposite Charlize Theron as the Evil Queen and the scrumptious Viggo Mortensen as the hunter.

It also seems that Jack the Giant Killer has found his princess. The lucky girl is called Eleanor Tomlinson, who previously worked her magic in Alice in Wonderland, The Illusionist and Angus, Thongs and Perfect Snogging (which I happened to catch last weekend; I found her quite charming). So, it seems that the love affair with Keira Knightley and Carey Mulligan is temporarily over (and let us all rejoice). Then again, they would’ve been a tad old for Nicholas Hoult, our very own Jack.
