Peter Pan Projects

I did like the Disney movie when I was a kid, but I could only really appreciate J.M. Barrie's fairy tale when I was a little older. Since then, I'm intrigued by the story and it's different adaptations. We're lucky that a lot of new approaches are being made, but older ones are included in my list too. Suggestions are always welcome.

Projects that are announced, but are not yet listed on IMDb:
Neverland (with Pan as the villain and Hook as the hero), Untitled Peter Pan Project (family adventure); The.Never.Land (young adult approach), Peter and Wendy (an NBC workplace romantic comedy told from the point of view of Wendy, a woman who wants to find love with a real man, but finds herself falling for Peter, who refuses to fully embrace adulthood - script only for now).
Cancelled: Peter Pan (an updated version of the musical with a male lead).
