Thesp into flying ‘Pan’

Williams cast as Wendy's mom in Neverland pic

Olivia Williams, best known for her roles in “The Sixth Sense” and “Rushmore,” will star as Mrs. Darling in P.J. Hogan’s big-budget adaptation of “Peter Pan,” a co-production between Revolution Studios, Columbia Pictures and Universal Pictures.

Mrs. Darling is the mother of Wendy, John and Michael, the three children who meet Peter Pan, the boy who refuses to grow up, and travel back to Neverland with him.

Williams will star opposite newcomer Jeremy Sumpter, who plays Pan, Jason Isaacs as Captain Hook, and Ludivine Sagnier as Tinkerbell in the $100 million production.

Revolution is overseeing the production, which begins lensing Sept. 30 in Australia. Hogan is helming from his own script, an adaptation of James M. Barrie’s classic novel and play.

Pic is being readied for a Christmas 2003 bow.

Williams will next appear in David Twohy’s submarine thriller “Below,” which Dimension Films is distribbing to theaters Oct. 11.

She also recently wrapped Mike Barker’s historical drama “Cromwell and Fairfax” and made the festival circuit with Gold Circle Films’ “The Man From Elysian Fields.”
