Ben Hibon, the man receiving much praise for his astonishing animated sequence in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1, has been selected to direct the upcoming fantasy thriller Pan, according to IGN.
Ben is coming straight off the success of the new Harry Potter flick and is the hot topic for one particular animated scene in the film. The scene is a four minute animated trip through the history of the Deathly Hallows.
Christopher Tuffin, one of the producers of Pan has said the following regarding Ben Hibon:
Ben Hibon is a true visionary whose directorial talents will entertain and surprise audiences of all ages for decades to come.
According to IGN:
The film will follow the lore of Peter Pan with a dark and depressing twist as Captain Hook is portrayed as a former detective who has the unsettling duty of locating a child-like kidnapper.
This plot seems to add a nice twist to the timeless classic, Peter Pan, and with Hibon’s talents, it should be one entertaining ride.
There is not much word as to when the film will begin production nor when it will be released.
Stay tuned for any updates.
