Rooney Mara will play Tiger Lily in Joe Wright's version of the Peter Pan story, titled "Pan."

So she goes from playing a Swedish bisexual punk rocker investigative genius to playing a make believe Native American ... because, I'm sure, all the real Native American actresses were just busy or something.

Nevertheless, Garrett Hedlund will play Captain Hook and Hugh Jackman will be Blackbeard, according to Lainey Gossip, which reported the movie (at least at the beginning) will be set during World War II.

The website also reported Peter Pan will be played by a yet-to-be-cast young boy and Warner Bros. has described the project as "multiracial/international." Which must explain why they cast Rooney Mara.
