Charles Dance Heads To Neverland
The Peter Pan prequel gets its alchemist

04 October 2010  |  Written by Alastair Plumb

Charles Dance, of Alien3, Bleak House and Gosford Park fame, not to mention his recent appearance as Havelock Vetenari on Pratchett adaptation Going Postal, is set to return to the Sky fold with Neverland.

For those not in the know, it's a two-part mini-series-cum-film that tells the story of Dr. Richard Fludd, a 400-year-old former alchemist to Queen Elizabeth who discovers 'the bridge' to Neverland.

As made for television movies go, it's pretty exciting, and not only because we'll get to go back to Neverland, but also because it boasts a cast that includes Rhys Ifans, Anna Friel and Bob Hoskins.

Sadly, Mr. Hoskins won't be busting out a natty green Pan outfit but one thing we are sure of is that it will involve pirates. And cities formed out of trees. And pickpockets.

Neverland is shooting now and is set to air sometime in 2011.
