Take That frontman Gary Barlow is set to compose the score for a  stage adaptation of Johnny Depp's Hollywood film Finding Neverland.

The 42-year-old Patience singer has signed up to write new songs for a musical version of the popular 2004 flick, which featured Depp as Peter Pan playwright J. M. Barrie.

Film producer and studio executive, Harvey Weinstein, has revealed that Barlow has already composed five songs.

Speaking to the Daily Mail newspaper, Weinstein said: "We love what Gary's written. There's one number he's written for Act Two that's hummable right away - it's really melodic... We've got a great team."

Weinstein further explained that the Finding Neverland musical will open in London's West End theatre district next spring, 2014.
