Amanda Seyfried is amongst the latest names to have joined “Pan,” Joe Wright’s live-action Peter Pan prequel film at Warner Bros. Pictures. Seyfried will play Mary in the film which begins shooting next week in England.
Described a new take on the origins of the character from the beloved J.M. Barrie tale, the film will follow an orphan boy (Levi Miller) who is spirited away to the magical Neverland, where he discovers both adventure and danger.
Also hopping onboard are Jack Charles (“Mystery Road”) as The Chief/Tiger Lily’s father, Taejoo Na (“The Kick”) as Kwahu, Nonso Anozie (“Son of God”) as Bishop, Kathy Burke (“Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy”) as Mother Barnabas; Kurt Egyiawan (“Skyfall”) as Murray, Lewis MacDougall (“In the Name of the Children”) as Nibs, and newcomer Leni Zieglmeier as Wendy Darling.
The group join the previously cast Hugh Jackman as the villain Blackbeard, Garrett Hedlund as a young Captain Hook, Rooney Mara as Tiger Lily, and Adeel Akhtar as Smee. Greg Berlanti, Paul Webster and Sarah Schechter are producing with a July 17th 2015 release planned.
