    NBC will be airing a Live-Action Peter Pan.
    Possibly based on the Play.
    It will be starring Christopher Walken as Captain Hook!

    This is a must see!

    I still have a VHS I recorded of a 1960 presentation with Mary Martin when it was dusted off for an 80's airing.

    "Captain Hook! Captain Hook!"

    Kristen Bell was in talks with them to be Peter Pan but she's busy with House of Lies and is pregnant now.

    I've never seen the Walken Puss In Boots, but heard it's a cult classic.

    He'll ask them politely not to touch the hair. Otherwise he'll do some Panage they can't walk away from.

    Aww, I thought he might be playing Pan himself. But that'll do.

    With Grace Jones (May Day) as Tinker Bell--or Adam Ant if you like.


    Imagine Shatner doing Brando--that's Walken.

    Live action!?!?! I don't know what to think about that. TBH, I have been a fan of the whole Peter Pan story since the movie Hook. For some reason I never cared for that movie.

    Now imagine Shatner......talking--- to Walken. And...Walken talking to....Shatner. With Alyson Hannigan, talking, to, both of, them. A punctuational paradise.

    This is yet another revival of the 1954 Broadway musical, which used to be a TV staple.

    There are probably few of us still around who remember seeing the Mary Martin versions when they were performed live and not videotaped.
