Peter Pan is reinvented in a more predatorial style for The Lost Girls – and here’s the trailer.

Beyond the dreamy cinematography and spiralling piano score, there’s something dark lurking at the heart of Altitude’s upcoming reimagining of the Peter Pan story. Titled The Lost Girls, an ironic play on characters from JM Barrie’s 1911 book, the film looks set to follow four generations of females that have been seduced by the boy who never grew up.

We’ve seen this approach work well before with HG Wells’ The Invisible Man, most notably in the 2020 film, (not to mention Kevin Bacon in 2000’s Hollow Man,) where a literary character is reinvented as a gaslighting predator. Now it looks like its Peter Pan’s turn, with the trailer presenting Pan as an intoxicating seducer who returns to haunt four generations of the same family.

If that doesn’t sound interesting enough already for you, then it’s probably worth mentioning that you also get none other than Game Of Thrones’ Iain Glen as a modern take on Captain Hook as well. We’re intrigued, and although we don’t have a confirmed UK release date yet, we know it’s coming to the UK in late spring.

Our friends in the US are getting it in cinemas and on demand in mid-June. In the meantime, you can catch the trailer below.
