If you thought NBC's live rendition of The Sound of Music was bad, get ready for NBC's next train wreck. Capitalizing on the success of The Sound of Music, the network announced this week that they will be producing a live version of Peter Pan.
The producer who made the announcement joked that he wants Miley Cyrus to play Peter Pan. Was he joking? Because that would be great for all the comedians hoping to live tweet the crap out of it.
Since the announcement, twitter has been buzzing over the idea of Miley Cyrus flying around a stage on live TV.
There are those on twitter who are vehemently against it:
If they cast Miley Cyrus in NBC's Live Peter Pan I WILL QUIT ACTING AND BECOME A BASKETWEAVER.

Those who are definitely open to the idea:
Okay I know everyone thinks she is totally crazy and they may have been joking....But Miley Cyrus would probably be a GREAT Peter Pan

NBC thinking of casting Miley Cyrus as Peter Pan? Well we know she can sing, act and fly (via wrecking ball and marijuana) so why not.

If Miley Cyrus was cast as Peter Pan she wouldn't need any pixie dust to fly. She would only need a wrecking ball.

And then there's this person with an idea so crazy it might actually be genius:
Miley Cyrus for Peter Pan. Beyonce for Wendy.

Whether you love to hate it or genuinely love it, everyone will be watching Peter Pan on December 4th. Well done, NBC.
