‘League of Pan’ Makes Adults of the Lost Boys
So much of what comes from Hollywood has its obvious reference points. And for ‘The League of Pan’ the success of shows like ‘Grimm’ and ‘Once Upon a Time’ means that it’s a marketable idea to take elements from the J.M Barrie classic ‘Peter Pan’ and turn it into a TV series.
According to Deadline Hollywood, the story would follow the Lost Boys from the original story (though it’s to be set in modern times) ten years after they’ve left Neverland island. So you’ve got a group of 18-22 year old (we’re guessing hunky) men. With that title, which recalls ‘The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen’, it sounds like they’ll fight crime. Perhaps the island gifted them with budget-friendly special powers.
Reading this though, we imagine that the island plays a big part in the narrative, as it sounds somewhat origin-y. Perhaps they’ll be flashbacks to the island and how they all got there, and what their roles were at the time. Maybe a plane crash landed, and perhaps there’s some sense of destiny behind their time at Neverland. Why not put a little ‘Lost’ in the lost boys? That’s just spitballing, but it sounds like the only thing they have right now is the title. But considering what’s successful right now, it also sounds like a go project.
