Amanda Seyfried has joined a star-studded cast for an exciting remake of Peter Pan. And it gets better – it’s to be a live-adaptation!

The production will see the actress reunite with her Les Misérables co-star Hugh Jackman, who is on board to play scary pirate Blackbeard.

Amanda will play Mary in director Joe Wright’s interesting new take on JM Barrie’s classic novel.

The story is set during World War II and will follow an orphan boy who is kidnapped to the magical Neverland, where pirates rule the high seas.

Newcomer Levi Miller will play Peter Pan, Garrett Hedlund will play Hook and Rooney Mara will portray Tiger Lily.

Filming on Peter Pan will begin on Monday, 28th April at the Warner Bros. Studios in England. The movie is scheduled to be released in cinemas on Sunday, 26th July 2015.
