Looks like the Pan casting won’t be stepping into the fire this time.
After drawing a heap of controversy for casting Rooney Mara as the American Indian character Tiger Lily, filmmakers have moved on with their next bit of casting- the lead.
So who will play the ageless Peter Pan? A virtual unknown named Levi Miller.
The young actor, best known for a short-lived stint on the even shorter-lived Terra Nova, was found by director Joe Wright after an exhaustive international search.
Why such a lengthy search? Considering this is a brand new take on the story, we’re guessing this Peter won’t be like any we’ve ever seen.
Lil’ Levi will join previously announced Mara, Garrett Hedlund, and Hugh Jackman.[Image via IMDB.]
