Hugh Jackman’s ‘Pan’ Moves Back from Summer to Fall

Warner Bros. has pushed back the release date of “Pan” to October in an effort to avoid a big crowd at the summer box office.

The Peter Pan original tale, directed by Joe Wright, will now open Oct. 9, instead of July 24. Starring Hugh Jackman and Garrett Hedlund, the 3D adventure pic was surrounded by tentpoles like Marvel’s “Ant-Man” and Paramount’s “Mission: Impossible” sequel.

“We wanted to give ‘Pan’ the space to extend its theatrical run, so taking it out of the cluttered summer season made the most sense,” WB distribution exec Dan Fellman said.

Jason Fuchs penned the new take on the classic story. Set during WWII, it 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 (Jackman).

Hedlund plays a young Hook, while Levi Miller stars as Peter Pan. The feature also features Rooney Mara and Amanda Seyfried.

Greg Berlanti, Paul Webster and Sarah Schechter are producing “Pan,” with Courtenay Valenti and Andrew Fischel overseeing for the studio. The movie was shot last year in London.
