Keira Knightley Signs Onto TV Movie
For some reason, it seems as though Keira Knightley has signed onto a TV movie project with the network SyFy (previously SciFi).
The project is being called Neverland, and is said to be a prequel to Peter Pan. The story will revolve around Peter Pan and his friends travel to Never Neverland with their mentor, “Jimmy Hook.” Sounds interesting…And, since you’re probably wondering, “Well, Knightley can’t be playing Wendy because the prequel would be years before her story.” You’re right. Supposedly, Knightley will be taking the role of Tinkerbell. However, she will only be lending her voice.
I’m not sure if SyFy is known for its CGI quality (see: Sharktopus), but there was a lot of success with the Wizard of Oz prequel miniseries, “Tin Man,” starring Zooey Deschanel (of She & Him), so maybe there’s something to this.
Will you watch Neverland?
