Ever since it was announced that Gary Ross would not take on ‘The Hunger Games‘ sequel, fans were curious to see what he’d sink his teeth into next. Would it be something in the fantasy persuasion? Since he’s snuggling up towards ‘Peter and the Starcatchers’ the answer is yes.

This is a decision that’s been bubbling up for awhile. Director Gary Ross could have swerved into multiple other projects, and at one point was going to be taking on the life story of Houdini. But between that project and this fantasy, Ross decided to go with ‘Peter and the Starcatchers,’ reports Deadline Hollywood, and you can say he’s going the Disney route. We’re not saying that as a negative – he is literally taking on a picture that’s being backed by Disney.

‘Peter and the Starcatchers’ serves as a prequel of sorts to the widely popular J.M. Barrie story and Disney animated feature ‘Peter Pan.’ In this prequel – based on the novel written by Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson – Peter becomes friends with a young girl named Molly who warns him to try and keep a mysterious and magical trunk away from Black Stache who eventually becomes Captain Hook. All sorts of marvelous adventure ensues from that point forward. Ross is expected to kick start production on this picture right away in 2013. This finally lays to rest the rumors on his involvement with ‘Peter and the Starcatchers.’
