With the cameras now scheduled to roll next week at Leavesden Studios, Joe Wright has rounded out the cast for Peter Pan origin tale Pan. Amanda Seyfried, Nonso Anozie, Kathy Burke, Jack Charles, Taejoo Na, Kurt Egyiawan, Lewis MacDougall and Leni Zieglmeier are all now on board.
They’re joining the already-announced Hugh Jackman (Blackbeard), Garrett Hedlund (Hook), Rooney Mara (Tiger Lily), Adeel Akhtar (Smee) and Levi Miller (Pan) in the film, which charts Peter’s backstory from the time he was an orphan spirited away to Neverland and his earliest encounters with some of the people there. In this story, he was friends with the young Hook, who would go on to become his nemesis.
These new arrivals are set to play characters both familiar and fresh, with Seyfried lined up for Mary with Anozie as Bishop, Charles as Tiger Lily’s chieftain father, Burke as Mother Barnabas, Egyiawan as Murray, MacDougall as Nibs and newcomer Zieglmeier as Wendy Darling.
Wright is working from the screenplay by Jason Fuchs and Pan is set to fly into our cinemas on July 17 next year.
