Rooney Mara to Play Tiger Lily in Warner Bros. PAN


The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo star Rooney Mara is in negotiations to play Tiger Lily in Warner Bros. live-action adaptation of Pan. She will join Hugh Jackman who is playing Blackbeard and Garrett Hedlund who will be Captain Hook.

The movie tells the "untold story of how a young orphan boy from London is spirited away to the magical Neverland where he finds grand adventures that shape him into the hero known to generations as Peter Pan."

Joe Wright is directing the film from a script written by Jason Fuchs. It's interesting that Mara is going to take this role as she's not a Native American, but according to The Wrap, "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." 

It will be interesting to see how this film comes together, but Wright is a really talented director so I'm sure he'll do good things with it.
