Joey Essex has revealed if he were to take on any film role it would be Peter Pan, but he would add superhero powers such as hovering and breathing underwater to the classic character
Joey Essex wants to take on the role of 'Peter Pan'.
The former 'The Only Way Is Essex' star has revealed that although he doesn't have any acting experience, if he was to be in any movie he'd want to take on the lead role in a remake of the Disney classic.
Quizzed on what movie franchise he'd like to be a part of, Joey exclusively told BANG Showbiz: "I've never really considered doing a film, maybe in the future but I reckon I'd have to have acting lessons. I'm good at being me and, being me, I don't think I'm an actor."
He added: "I would say James Bond but that's pretty typical so I'd say I want to be like Peter Pan or something."
However, the 24-year-old TV personality claims he'd like to put his own twist on the character, turning him into more of a superhero.
He explained: "Yeah, but instead of being Peter Pan I'd do a new show called 'Joey Essex' and just dress up in the costume. I'd act to be me. I'd be Joey Essex but I'd have a few superpowers ... I can fly, I can hover, breathe underwater."
