Peter Pan
Logline: 
In a retelling of Peter Pan, an escaped serial killer is hunted by detective Sam Smiegel and his partner, James Hook.
Synopsis/Details: 

A serial killer only known as Peter has broken out of the Barrie asylum for the criminally insane by his six-year-old, mute daughter, Bell.

Detective Sam Smiegel (Smee) and his newly promoted partner, Captain James Hook, begin to search for Peter again after being the only two surviving officers from his earlier capture in which Peter bit off James Hook’s hand. The first place they search is Big Panther’s bar where the mafia princess and Peter’s former lover, Lilly hangs out. Lilly is of no help, but we learn that she is Bell’s mother and that Peter makes different designer drugs that the mafia boss Big Panther sells.

While the detectives continue to search, Peter and Bell break into the Darling house and kill Mr. and Mrs. Darling before kidnapping Wendy, Michael, and John.

The detectives return to the asylum looking for answers, searching Peter’s cell and discovering a crude drawing of Neverland. A filmed interview with Peter reveals more clues including that his alternative personality's name is Croc.

Inside of Neverland, Peter keeps Wendy alive in front of the preserved dead seventeen boys he’s kidnapped and murdered, now including John and Michael. To keep Wendy docile, Peter gives her drugs which make the world around her seem like a fantasy where all the boys are alive and playing.

Peter realizes the detectives will be after him again and sends Bell to bring a note and drugs to Lilly. Lilly Meets Peter and gives him information on both Smee and James. Lilly then takes Smee and James to Peter’s hideout. Several officers and Lilly die as James and Smee discover the hideout. At the same time, Peter and Bell prepare their trap for the detectives using Wendy as bait. Wendy kills Bell.

The detectives discover Wendy as Peter disappears. James goes after Peter, and Peter murders him. Smee takes Wendy to the police station and then teaches Wendy to fire a gun after arranging for her to stay at his home. Late that night, Peter returns to kidnap Smee’s baby, Jane and is shot by Wendy. Peter falls out of a window and although his clothes are recovered, his body is not.

Ry Graves's picture

The Writer: Ry Graves

I'm currently a young adult author soon to be published by Dreaming Big Publications and am making the switch to writing screenplays. I've recently written and performed the story, Homemade Superman for Story District's annual Surprise Stories show. Besides the screenplay of my dark family dramedy based on my book, Peter, Potter, Slaughter, I have two other feature screenplays and several pilots with female leads. Although my screenplay, Meg's & Donna's & Brandon's So High, is listed as a pilot, the script is easily transferred to a feature or a stage production. I like to mix genres and use strong, human charters. I have also listed three short screenplays with shoestring budgets... Go to bio
