There have been plenty of Peter Pan movies throughout the years, but that isn’t stopping Warner Bros. from stepping back into Neverland for another take on the legend. The upcoming Peter Pan origin story, simply titled Pan, will be directed by Joe Wright (Anna Karenina) and is set to star Hugh Jackman as Blackbeard and Garrett Hedlund as Captain Hook.
Now The Wrap is reporting that another star has entered the mix as Rooney Mara is in negotiations to play Tiger Lily in the film. In the original story, Tiger Lily is a Native American princess living in a tribe in Neverland, so it’s obvious that Wright is taking a different approach to the character with Mara.
The site is reporting that “Wright is planning to create a world that very international and multi-racial, effectively challenging audiences’ preconceived notions of Neverland and reimagining the environment.” Whether this experiment works out or not remains to be seen.
Pan will hit theaters on July 17, 2015.
