David Magee is the screenwriter of the fantastic movies Finding Neverland and Life of Pi. He’s also working on the new Mary Poppins and Narnia films.
I’m a nut for anything Peter Pan/Captain Hook related, so this talk with David is really fun. We get into J.M. Barrie’s life during the creation of Peter Pan and how David did his research. We talk plenty of Captain Hook and how he fits into the story of both Peter Pan and Barrie’s life.
And we had to talk some Life of Pi too! It was a notoriously difficult book to adapt until David and Ang Lee got their hands on it. We’ll dip our toes into Mary Poppins and Narnia too.
