U.K. goverment-backed firms have joined forces with an independent producer to secure the film and television rights to “Peter Pan in Scarlet,” the recently penned, officially sanctioned sequel to J.M. Barrie’s classic children’s tale “Peter Pan,” they announced Monday.

The decision to grant the consortium rights to Geraldine McCaughrean’s “Peter Pan In Scarlet” was made by the Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity Trustees (GOSHCC), the beneficiary of Barrie’s will.

The property will be developed by the U.K. Film Council, BBC Films and Headline Pictures according to Reuters.

I don’t get this…its just like the officially sanctioned sequel to Dracula that was done by the remaining family members of Bram Stoker…like, so does this completely negate Hook? And I’m sure it ignores Disney’s Peter Pan sequel “Return to Neverland”. And what exactly is the storyline behind this? I need to know more people!
