Finding Neverland is a heart-warming film about the life of J.M. Barrie, the creator of Peter Pan. Johnny plays Barrie, who, in desperate need of inspiration, finds magic in a chance encounter with a widowed mother and her four young boys. As Barrie becomes a surrogate father to the family, he introduces the boys to a whole new world filled with enchanted kingdoms, pirates and mischief.

Because so little has been written about Barrie, Johnny says his preparation for the role was primarily to master the Scottish accent.

"It was just a question of the voice...trying to find that voice," Johnny says. "I knew sort of what that accent sounded like, and I started working with a dialect coach and she helped me out a lot."
