Joe Wright's PAN Finds Its 'Smee' In FOUR LIONS' Adeel Akhtar

Director Joe Wright continues with his plan to diversify his movie (though he did miss out on casting a Native American as the...Native American) by adding hilarious Four Lions actor Adeel Akhtar to the cast of his Peter Pan prequel tale.



The Wrap report that Four Lions star Adeel Akhtar will join Hugh Jackman, Garrett Hedlund, and (possibly) Rooney Mara in Joe Wright's take on the origins of Peter Pan and his pals. Akhtar will play Smee; right hand man to Captain Hook (Hedlund) who was played previously in live-action by Bob Hoskins in Steven Spielberg's Hook. This version of 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.
