Cast[edit]

Production[edit]

The script for the film was listed on Hollywood's 2013 Black List.[6] On December 12, 2013, Warner Bros. set a release date for June 26, 2015, with Joe Wright helping the project.[7] The same month, Hugh Jackman entered negotiations to play the part of the pirate Blackbeard.[8]

On January 17, 2014, Warner Bros. pushed the film's release date back to July 17, 2015.[9] Garrett Hedlund then entered negotiations to join the film as a younger version of Captain Hook.[10] On January 24, Jackman was officially cast.[1] In February, a casting call was issued for the role of Peter Pan,[11] while Rooney Mara was cast as Tiger Lily.[12] The casting of Mara met with controversies due to her being of Patrician descent, whereas Tiger Lily is traditionally depicted as a Native American.[13] The role of Peter was filled by newcomer Levi Miller in March.[3] In April, Amanda Seyfried was cast, Hedlund was confirmed as Hook and a filming date of April 28 was set.[2]
