Peter Pan Cast in Warner Bros' PAN

MoviePanby Joey Paur

Warner Bros. and director Joe Wright have cast the young Levi Miller (Terra Nova) to play Peter Pan in their movie Pan. The director spent a long time looking for the right actor to take on the role of Pan, and I guess this is the kid that matches his vision for the film. He will join Hugh Jackman who will play Blackbeard, Garrett Hedlund who will play Hook, and Rooney Mara who is in talks to play Tiger Lily. 

I find this following statement really interesting, "Wright is planning to create a world that is very international and multi-racial, effectively challenging audiences’ preconceived notions of Neverland and reimagining the environment." Why do I think that's interesting? Because everyone who's been cast in the movie so far is white. I don't see any multi-racialness going on at all yet. 

The script for the film was written by Jason Fuchs, and the film will be a new take on the classic story. It's set during WWII and "follows an orphan who is kidnapped by pirates and brought to Neverland, where he discovers he’s destined to save the land from the pirate Blackbeard."
