Levi Miller Tapped to Play Peter Pan in Warner Bros.’ ‘Pan’ (EXCLUSIVE)

Actor Levi Miller

After a long search to find Peter Pan for its origins tale “Pan,” Warner Bros. has tapped newcomer Levi Miller to play the title role.

He joins Hugh Jackman, who will play the the pirate Blackbeard; Garrett Hedlund, who has been tapped to play Hook; and Rooney Mara, who is in talks to play Tiger Lily. Joe Wright will direct.

Jason Fuchs penned the script with Greg Berlanti, Paul Webster and Sarah Schechter producing. Courtenay Valenti is overseeing for the studio.

The film will be a new take on the classic story. It is set during WWII and follows an orphan who is kidnapped by pirates and brought to Neverland, where he discovers he’s destined to save the land from the pirate Blackbeard.

The world being created is international — and with a very different title character than previously imagined.

Wright was looking for a new discovery for the role of Pan, conducting an extensive casting search in the U.K. with open calls, and Miller seems to fit the bill — his biggest credit to date is an episode of “Terra Nova.” He is repped by CESD Eaton Management in Australia and attorney Fred Tozeck.

    “The world being created is MULTI-RACIAL, international and with a very different title character than previously imagined.”

    Very happy the original article was edited to remove the term “multi-racial”. With all the main cast being lily White it’s ridiculous to keep claiming it ‘s going to be multi-racial. Furthermore they are actually giving the part of a Native-American character to one of the palest White actresses in the business as a final slap in the face.
