Calling all Lost Boys! Pan film is searching for its Peter in London

Warner Bros are looking for a "boy living in a world of fantasy and dreams" to play Peter Pan in the new live action remake of JM Barrie's iconic tale


Are you courageous? Adventurous? A bit of a dreamer?  


Generally fearsome when it comes to hungry crocodiles and hook-handed pirates, au fait with talking to fairies and happy wearing a little green leotard?

So long as you are also a boy aged between 11 and 13, you’re in luck. (If you fall above that age category, we’re not sure what advice we are qualified to offer…)

Warner Bros are searching London for a fresh new face to star as Peter Pan, the boy who never grew up, in upcoming live action feature film Pan. 

A nationwide, open casting call will take place on Sunday 23 February at Wembley Arena in London, looking for boys of all ethnicities between the ages of 11 and 13 who are no taller than 5 ft 4 inches. 

The casting call describes Peter Pan as “a courageous and adventurous orphaned boy living in a world of fantasy and dreams, which sometimes leads him into trouble.” 

The lucky chap who bags the role will star alongside Hugh Jackman, who has been cast as Blackbeard. 

Pan is based on the classic children’s story Peter Pan by JM Barrie. The film, which will shoot in the UK later this year, is directed by Joe Wright, who has previously turned his hand to Pride and Prejudice, Atonement and Anna Karenina.
