A whole new gang of actors will be following the Lost Boys to Neverland. “Les Misérables” star Amanda Seyfried will join the cast of PAN as Mary alongside Hugh Jackman as Blackbeard, Garrett Hedlund as Hook and Rooney Mara as Tiger Lily. Also joining the project are Nonso Anozie, Kathy Burke, Jack Charles, Taejoo Na, Kurt Egyiawan, Lewis MacDougall and Leni Zieglmeier. The Joe Wright helmed project will go into the back story of Peter Pan, telling the story of how he was orphaned and taken to Neverland and his early friendship with a young Hook.
Seyfried began her career in light comedies like “Mean Girls” and “Mamma Mia,” eventually coming into her own in “Les Misérables” and the biopic “Lovelace.” She’s going back to her comedy roots, though, teaming up with Seth MacFarlane in “A Million Ways to Die in the West” and “Ted 2.”
Seyfried is repped by Innovative Artists.
