Origin story to shoot in April
Warner Bros. has dated “Pan,” its Peter Pan origin tale, for June 26, 2015.
Joe Wright is attached to direct from the Jason Fuchs script but the 3D film has not yet been cast with shooting planned for April. Plot details are being kept under wraps, but the pic is certain to bring back the characters created by Scottish novelist and playwright J. M. Barrie about a boy who can fly and never ages.
Wright adapted “Pride and Prejudice” and “Anna Karenina.”
Greg Berlanti and Paul Webster are producing and Sarah Schechter is overseeing for the studio. “Pan” is the fourth Warner title dated for the 2015 summer following “Mad Max: Fury Road” on May 22, “San Andreas” on June 5 and its untitled Batman-Superman movie on July 17.
“Pan” will face competition on June 26, 2015, with Universal’s sequel to “Ted.”
