The Wrap report that Girl With The Dragon Tattoo actress Rooney Mara is in negotiations to join Hugh Jackman (Blackbeard) and Garrett Hedlund (Captain Hook) in director Joe Wright's Pan. Mara would play Tiger Lily - daughter of a great Neverland Chief and close friend of Peter's. This take on the classic story will focus on a young London boy who is spirited away to Neverland, where he will begin his journey to become the legendary "Pan". The script was written by Jason Fuchs and will be produced by Greg Berlanti. We recently found out that Pan took Man Of Steel 2's original release date of July 17, 2015.

I bet they didnt even try
Nick56 - 3/12/2014, 1:55 PM
As much as I love Rooney Mara (and Kate Mara) they should have really gotten a Native actress. But if she works, she works. Very interested in Wright's take on the story
FordEl - 3/12/2014, 1:56 PM
Johnny Storm is a different situation. Hes American while Native American is a different thing.

When your family owns a football team you can play whatever role you want I suppose, just like Jaden.

Serious side:

Isn't she a little to old to play an indian princess who's pan's age when the movie is rumored to be more about a young Hook?
ALmazing - 3/12/2014, 2:11 PM
Isn't there another movie coming out on the same day that I am looking forward to more?

JamesMan - 3/12/2014, 2:15 PM
Why doesn't the studio get a good Native American actress? Simple, can you guys name one Native American actress currently working?
CherryBomb - 3/12/2014, 2:17 PM
Shay Mitchell for everything

Pasto - 3/12/2014, 2:18 PM

Pan will destroy Antman. One is a live action adaption of a beloved classic family story and the other is a movies based on a character that only comic book fans know, half of which (including myself) think he is a lame character. Im hoping for the best with both films, but if Alice, Oz, Snow White, and other similar classic adaptions are any indication, Pan will make a killing.
Pasto - 3/12/2014, 2:20 PM
Wait wait wait...

Rooney Mara is attractive?
MexicanSuperman - 3/12/2014, 2:20 PM
It isn't like the actual character Mara is playing is actually Native American, because she and her people don't live in America. They live Neverland.
JamesMan - 3/12/2014, 2:21 PM
@TheMexicanSupermansMacaquelisHairy

Dear god you're right.
aztecRaingod - 3/12/2014, 2:22 PM
Dude, she looks totally native american. smh
CherryBomb - 3/12/2014, 2:23 PM

@Pasto

If Rooney Mara can allegedly play Tiger Lily then Shay can too! :D

Sheesh!

Is the movie based on the Regis Loisel comics "Peter Pan" which also tell the character's origin? (the synopsis seems quite close to these books except for the presence of a character named Blackbeard)
