Warner Bros Peter Pan remake “Pan” casting lead role of Peter! – Open auditions and online submissions!!

Director Joe Wright’s Upcoming Feature Film “Pan” is Searching for the Starring Role of “Peter”

Previous Joe Wright films include: Pride & Prejudice, Hanna, Atonement, Anna Karenina
CASTING FOR THE ROLE OF:
Peter

Peter is a courageous & adventurous orphaned boy living in a world of fantasy and dreams, which sometimes leads him into trouble

PARTICIPATION RESTRICTIONS:
Open to boys only
Open to all ethnicities
Age Range: 11 – 13 years
Height Limit: MAXIMUM 5ft 4inches

All auditionees must be available for the production period in London from April til early Autumn 2014

Warner bros has a new project coming up, “Pan“. The Warner Bros movie is holding open auditions for boys who are 11 to 13 of any ethnicity for lead roles in the movie.

Hugh Jackman is set to play Blackbeard in the remake of “Peter Pan” and the film will be directed by Oscar-nominated, Joe Wright (Atonement). The movie will film in the UK and all auditioning should be available for filming in London in the summer and fall of 2014. The film is being written by J.M. Barrie and Jason Fuchs.

The summer of 2015 will be a big one for Warner Bros who has 4 films set to be released summer 2015. Other movies Warner Bros is working on for the 2015 summer are “Mad Max: Fury Road”, “San Andreas”, and the currently untitled Batman-Superman movie. Variety reports that ‘Pan” will be filmed in 3D.

We know that Peter, Hook and Hugh Jackman as Blackbeard the pirate will be apart of “Pan“, however, the full story line is still a bit of a mystery. The story is supposed to be original, based on the beloved characters of the classic Peter Pan. In “Pan”, Blackbeard and not hook is to be the tale’s villain and this remake’s events will most likely take place prior to the story of Peter Pan that we are familiar with.

Open auditions will be held on February 23rd

Seeking: Boys 11 to 13, any ethnicity – They are only holding a casting call for kids and only for boys.
