Rooney Mara in negotiating the role of Tiger Lily in 'Pan', and will star alongside Hugh Jackman and Garret Hedlund
Rooney Mara is in talks to play Tiger Lily in 'Pan'.
The 'Girl With The Dragon Tattoo' star is negotiating the role of the Native American princess in the latest re-working of J.M. Barrie's children's classic Peter Pan, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Mara will star alongside Garret Hedlund, who has been offered the part of Captain Hook, after beating 'Broad Walk Empire' star Jack Huston and Ezra Miller - who appeared alongside Emma Watson in 'The Perks of Being A Wall Flower' - to the coveted role, and Hugh Jackman will play the villainous Captain Blackbeard.
The story will look into the origins of Peter Pan, an orphan who is taken to the magical world of Neverland where he goes into battle against the evil pirates and becomes a hero among the natives.
Fans of the novel will also get to see the back story of Hook, who served as Pan's close ally before turning evil.
Wright's offering will make a drastic change from past adaptations of the Peter Pan story which included 'Hook' starring Robin Williams in 1991 and Disney's 1953 animation classic.
'PAN' is set to hit the big screen on July 17, 2015.
