Joe Wright Announces Peter Pan Casting Call
Neverland's got talent

Are you aged between 11 and 13, comfortable in tights and fearless in the face of very long queues? Unafraid to smile at a crocodile or cross swords with a scurrilous buccaneer? Well, Joe Wright wants you for his Pan casting call. The director will be searching for his Peter at Wembley Arena on February 23.

The event is open to boys of all ethnicities, as long as they’re accompanied by parent, guardian or benevolent fairy over the age of 18, and no taller than 5' 4" (the boy, that is; not the fairy). It all kicks off at 10am.

According to the official synopsis, “The role of Peter is described as a courageous and adventurous orphaned boy living in a world of fantasy and dreams, which sometimes leads him into trouble”. Villainy in the movie will be provided by Hugh Jackman as Blackbeard, with Tron: Legacy’s Garrett Hedlund heading to a fantasia of an altogether more swashbuckling kind as Captain Hook. The twist is that J. M. Barrie’s villain supreme will be on the side of the angels in this iteration as Pan and he team up to take on the nefarious Blackbeard.

Ice Age: Continental Drift scribe Jason Fuchs wrote Pan's screenplay, and the producers are Greg Berlanti and Warner Bros.’ Sarah Schechter. The current release date is July 17, 2015 - formerly the home of Superman/Batman. Aspiring Pans should head over to the official casting website for the full low-down on the casting call.
