Jason Fuchs will be providing the screenplay for the adaptation of J.M. Barrie’s classic character with “Arrow” executive producer Greg Berlanti producing under his Berlanti Productions and Sarah Schechter overseeing for Warner Bros.

According to Deadline, Fuchs’ script has an orphan taken to the magical world of Neverland, where he becomes the savior of the natives and leads a rebellion against evil pirates.

The question, of course, is why they are going with Blackbeard and not Hook? Only time will tell.
