Stephen Lang (Avatar) has been tapped for a recurring role on Wgn America‘s drama series Salem. Set in the volatile world of 17th century Massachusetts, it explores what really fueled the town’s infamous witch trials and centers on Mary Sibley (Janet Montgomery), the beautiful, ruthless but vulnerable wife of the ancient, ailing but very wealthy George Sibley (Michael Mulheren), one of Salem’s town Selectmen. Innovative Artists-repped Lang will play Increase Mather, an old-line, hard-core Puritan who led the way across the ocean to the Promised Land in the late 1600s. Intellectually, spiritually and politically, he’s the most influential man in the country — and the most feared. “Stephen Lang is a tremendous actor armed with an almost frightening knowledge of history and psychology — perfect for our twisted Salem, where Increase Mather is a man driven to monstrous deeds by the intensity of his convictions; and a loving »

Warner Bros. and director Joe Wright have cast the young Levi Miller (Terra Nova) to play Peter Pan in their movie Pan. The director spent a long time looking for the right actor to take on the role of Pan, and I guess this is the kid that matches his vision for the film. He will join Hugh Jackman who will play Blackbeard, Garrett Hedlund who will play Hook, and Rooney Mara who is in talks to play Tiger Lily.
I find this following statement really interesting, "Wright is planning to create a world that is very international and multi-racial, effectively challenging audiences’ preconceived notions of Neverland and reimagining the environment." Why do I think that's interesting? Because everyone who's been cast in the movie so far is white. I don't see any multi-racialness going on at all yet.
The script for the film was written by Jason Fuchs, and »

Never say never, as the old saying goes, but feel free to say it with "land" behind it all you want during this story. Warner Bros. has been hot on the trailer of the young actor who will lead (or follow within) their upcoming reimagining of Peter Pan, and now they.ve found him, without the help of Tinkerbell no less. Newcomer Levi Miller will make his feature debut in Pan, British director Joe Wright.s follow-up to 2012.s Anna Karenina. The whole point of Wright.s U.K. casting calls was to find an unknown actor to take the part, according to THR, and Miller is just that. His acting resume consists of a single episode of Fox.s shortlived sci-fi series Terra Nova, and two short films. One of those is Gerald Lambkin.s imaginative Great Adventures, a preview for which you can see below. And before that »
The filmmaker was looking for a fresh face to cast in the title role, with open casting calls held in the U.K. Levi Miller's biggest credit to date was a guest-starring role on the short-lived Fox series Terra Nova, along with roles in two short films.
The actor joins a cast that already includes Hugh Jackman as Blackbeard, Garrett Hedlund as Captain Hook, Rooney Mara as Tiger Lily and Adeel Akhtar as Hook's right-hand man Smee. The story, written by Jason Fuchs, is set during World War II, following the orphaned Peter Pan, who is kidnapped by pirates and brought to Neverland. The young man learns he is destined to save this magical world from the nefarious Blackbeard. The director is assembling an international cast, »
Joe Wright's “Pan” can officially take flight. Warner Bros. confirmed on Tuesday that the studio's quasi-reboot of J. M. Barrie's classic tale has signed up young actor Levi Miller to play the flying protagonist. Also read: NBC Airing ‘Peter Pan,’ Buys Amy Poehler and Katherine Heigl Pilots The film already enrolled Hugh Jackman to play ultimate baddie Blackbeard the Pirate, Garrett Hedlund to play Captain Hook, and Rooney Mara to play Tiger Lilly, so Miller, who is probably best known for his role on the TV series “Terra Nova,” will be in good company as he takes on the biggest role of his career. »

Despite a line-up that boasts of Hugh Jackman, Garrett Hedlund, and Rooney Mara, there has been one conspicuous absence in the cast list for Joe Wright’s Pan: Peter Pan himself. Wright has been searching high and low for a newcomer to play the titular part of the boy who never grew up, and now it appears that he’s found his Peter Pan in the form of Levi Miller.
The young actor will take on the role of a boy swept away from London to Neverland, where he encounters the dangerous pirate Blackbeard (Hugh Jackman) and makes friends (we think) with his eventual nemesis James Hook (Garrett Hedlund). Where the Native American Princess Tiger Lily (played by a decidedly not-Native American Rooney Mara) fits into all this has yet to be seen, but chances are that Peter will have to save the maiden at some point in the proceedings. »

According to Variety, Levi Miller -- who's biggest credit to date is a role in the tv series Terra Nova -- has been cast as Peter in Warner Bros.' Pan. He'll join an impressive cast which includes Hugh Jackman (Blackbeard), Garrett Hedlund (Hook), Adeel Akhtar (Smee) and possibly Rooney Mara (Tiger lily) in Joe Wright's take on the origins of Peter Pan and his pals. This version of the classic story will focus on a young London boy who is spirited away to Neverland, where he will begin his journey to become the legendary "Pan". The script was written by Jason Fuchs and will be produced by Greg Berlanti. We recently found out that Pan took Man Of Steel 2's original release date of July 17, 2015. »
At last, "Pan" has found its Peter.
Miller -- who's only acted in two short films and an episode of TV series "Terra Nova" -- landed the part after an extensive casting search that sought a fresh-faced 10- to 12-year-old boy for the role, which is said to be a complete re-imagining of the iconic character.
"Pan" follows Peter, an orphan during World War II who's kidnapped by pirates and brought to Neverland, where he must fight the pirate Blackbeard to save the land. In addition to Miller, the film stars Garrett Hedlund as a young, pre-villainous Captain Hook who befriends Peter, and Hugh Jackman, who's playing Blackbeard.

Warner Bros has reportedly signed a young actor to play Peter Pan in the upcoming origin story.
Rooney Mara was recently reported to be in talks to portray Tiger Lily in the film.
Pan will be a retelling of the classic Jm Barrie story. It will be set during WWII, and will follow an orphan boy who is kidnapped by pirates and taken to Neverland.
Pan will be released in cinemas on July 26, 2015. »
Joe Wright’s most recent piece of potential Pan casting – with Rooney Mara in talks to be Tiger Lily – is already causing some controversy, with critics worried about whitewashing what was a Native American character in this new take on J. M. Barrie’s Neverland adventures. We doubt there will be as much concern about the casting of Peter himself, as Levi Miller has snagged the role.Clearly aiming to find some relatively unknown talent for his central figure, Wright has hired Miller, whose relatively brief CV thus far only includes a couple of shorts and an episode of short-lived sci-fi drama Terra Nova. If it all works out, this could be his big break.Miller will be working alongside Hugh Jackman as the dreaded pirate Blackbeard and Garrett Hedlund, who is playing the more youthful version of Hook, the man who will eventually become Peter’s great nemesis. In this version, »
