Deadline is reporting that Disney has hired writer Jesse Wigutow to adapt the best selling children’s novel Peter and the Starcatchers into a movie. The book was released by Disney Hyperion Publishing and was co-authored by Dave Barry and Ridley Peterson. It is a prequel to J.M Barrie’s classic novel and tells Peter’s back story. Since Peter and the Starcatchers is the first in a series, it is possible that this could turn into a franchise if the first film is successful. The book has already inspired a hit Broadway show that recently received nice Tony Award nominations.
