The tuner version of “Finding Neverland” has nailed down a world-premiere slot at the La Jolla Playhouse during the 2011-12 season.

Dates have not yet been set for the tuner, which will be helmed and choreographed by Rob Ashford (“Promises, Promises,” “How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying”). Score is by the “Grey Gardens” duo of composer Scott Frankel and lyricist Michael Korie, with a book by Allan Knee, who wrote the play on which the 2004 Miramax pic was based.

Legit version of “Neverland,” a biographical take on “Peter Pan” scribe J.M. Barrie, has been under development by The Weinstein Company for a number of years now. This spring a separate “Pan”-related title, “Peter and the Starcatcher,” bows Off Broadway at New York Theater Workshop.

Casting and other details of “Neverland” remain to be announced.

Later this month, La Jolla Playhouse, the non-profit theater located on the campus of the U. of California San Diego, will present the world preem of screen-to-stage tuner “Little Miss Sunshine,” tipped to be a strong candidate for future life in Gotham.
