Rooney Mara To Play Tiger Lily In Pan

Rooney Mara (“The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo,” “The Social Network”) is set to play Tiger Lily in Joe Wright’s upcoming “Pan” for Warner Bros. Pictures.

A new adaptation of J.M. Barrie’s “Peter Pan,” she joins a cast that includes Hugh Jackman as the villain Blackbeard and Garrett Hedlund as his apprentice, a young Captain Hook. A young boy between the ages of 10 and 12 is being sought for the title role.

The characters are said to be setup very different than originally written, and the roles are being cast very wide – Mara beat out both Lupita Nyong’o (“12 Years a Slave”) and Adele Exarchopoulos (“Blue Is the Warmest Color”) for the role.

Jason Fuchs penned the script. Filming begins shortly.
