If you ask any fans of (and any cast and crew) on The Hunger Games, they’d likely tell you they want director Gary Ross back for the sequel, Catching Fire. But Lionsgate had a strict timeframe in mind for the sequel and the two-part grand finale, Mockingjay, and Ross wasn’t willing to rush things in order to meet the deadline.

So off Ross went to find his next project, looking into many different options. But now the meticulous director has made a decision, and it looks like he’ll be working for Walt Disney next.

According to reports, Ross has chosen an adaptation of the Dave Barry and Ridley Pearson novel Peter and the Starcatchers as his next film with hopes of getting to work on it as soon as possible, most likely sometime in 2013.

The book is something of a prequel to J.M. Barrie’s classic Peter Pan fairy tale, where Peter, along with a group of orphans called the Lost Boys who work as servants for King Zarboff, end up on a ship with a girl named Molly, an apprentice Starcatcher who teaches Peter about “starstuff.” The starstuff is very powerful and considered to be the greatest treasure imaginable, and they have to keep it from falling into the wrong hands, including Zarboff and a horrid pirate named Black Stache.

The script for the movie is being written by Jesse Wigutow.
