Jeremy Sumpter Is To Star As 'Peter Pan'[Tuesday, July 16th, 2002]
After a three-month search that spanned three continents, Revolution Studios, Red Wagon Prods. and director P.J. Hogan have found their Peter Pan in the form of 13-year-old actor Jeremy Sumpter, reports The Hollywood Reporter.
Sumpter, best known as young Adam Meiks in the Bill Paxton-directed "Frailty," has been tapped to star in the title role of the live-action project, which is a three-way co-production among Universal Pictures, Columbia Pictures and Revolution.
The youngster recently worked with Columbia on the upcoming feature "Adaptation," in which he plays the young version of Chris Cooper's character.
"Peter Pan," which also stars Jason Isaacs as Hook, will begin principal photography in the fall in Queensland, Australia, for a Christmas 2003 release.
