It looks like The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo star Rooney Mara will be heading to Neverland and will soon be fighting against pirates in the new Peter Pan live-action filmed called "Pan". The film is directed by Joe Wright known for more dramatic films such as Atonement and Anna Karenina. Rooney is cast as the infamous Tiger Lily, an Indian princess with attitude.

Written by Jason Fuchs of Ice Age: Continental Drift. This will be a new take on the classic J.M Barrie tale, set in WWII where a young orphan, Peter Pan is captured by pirates and taken to Neverland to face the likes of Blackbeard played by Hugh Jackman and a young, not yet evil Hook played by Garrett Hedlund.

I am already drooling at this all star cast and they haven't even yet found their young Peter Pan! This film set to be released in summer of next year and will surely be a summer blockbuster.
