Who has been cast in the Peter Pan live action remake?

According to Variety, two members of the cast have been announced, Wendy Darling and Peter Pan.

Alexander Molony will be playing Peter while Ever Gabo Anderson is said to be playing Wendy.

These are the biggest roles the two young actors have had in their careers yet.

Ever, however, isn't new to Hollywood as she is the daughter of actress Milla Jovovich and director Paul W.S. Anderson.

When is the Peter Pan live action remake out?

There is currently no release date for the live action remake, and filming is yet to begin.

However, with some members of the cast being revealed, we may see work starting on the motion picture soon.

However, director David Lowry said he is keen not to rush this project, explaining: "It took a long time to get the script to this point.

"I've been working on it for two years, but neither Disney nor myself wants it to just be an assembly line product. We want it to be special."

What is the new Peter Pan film about?

Script details of the film have not been revealed yet, and with Disney's track record of live action remakes it's anyone's guess what road they'll take with it.

While some remakes have stuck to the original stories, others – for example, Mulan – have been re-written and modernised.
