Tackling one of the best-loved children's story classics, Warner Bros. is assembling a cast for the Peter Pan movie, "Pan."

The company just announced Rooney Mara will play Tiger Lily in the project, with Hugh Jackman and Garrett Hedlund also on board.

Set in World War II, the film follows an orphan named Peter who is kidnapped by pirates and brought to Neverland, where he finds he's tasked with saving it from Blackbeard.

As for the title character, since Pan is between 10 and 12 at that point, an open casting call is expected to be held. The release is slated for July 17, 2015.
