Rooney Mara cast as Tiger Lily in Peter Pan remake

Rooney Mara has been cast as Tiger Lily in Warner Bros. remake of Peter Pan, Pan.

Hugh Jackman has been cast as Captain Blackbeard while Hook will be played by Garrett Headlund.

An actor has not yet been chosen for Peter and an open casting call will be held to find a suitable option.

Variety reports that the world in which Pan will be set in is “multi-racial/international – and a very different character than previously imagined.”

It is also reported that Warner Bros. had an “exhaustive” search to find the right person to play Tiger Lily, “looking at other actresses such as Lupita Nyong’o and Blue is the Warmest Color thesp. Adele Exarchopolous before going to Mara for the role”.

Pan is set to be released in the summer of 2015 and it is hoped it will appeal to fans of Lord of the Rings as well as the Harry Potter franchises.
