Actress Amanda Seyfried is all set to reteam with her ‘ Les Miserables’ cast mate Hugh Jackman in director Joe Wright’s upcoming Peter Pan prequel.
The ‘Mamma Mia!’ star will portray Mary in the live-action film, which features Jackman as pirate Blackbeard, Garrett Hedlund as Hook and Rooney Mara as Tiger Lily, reported Ace Showbiz.
Offering a new take on the origin of the classic characters created by JM Barrie, “Pan” follows the story of an orphan who is spirited away to the magical Neverland. There, he finds both fun and dangers, and ultimately discovers his destiny – to become the hero who will be forever known as Peter Pan.
Wright is directing the pic from a screenplay by Jason Fuchs. Greg Berlanti, Paul Webster and Sarah Schechter are producing, with Tim Lewis serving as executive producer. Filming will take place at WarnerBros Studios Leavesden.
The film is set for a worldwide release on July 17, 2015.
