Rooney Mara, who’s best known for her dark role in The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, has reportedly been tapped to play Tiger Lily in Pan.

Rooney Mara Cast In 'Pan'

Pan is the latest adaptation of J.M. Barrie’s Peter Pan narrative. Directed by Joe Wright, the film will be set in the midst of World War II, according to Entertainment Weekly. Peter, in this retelling, will be an orphan that gets captured by pirates, who bring him to Neverland.

In addition to Mara, Hugh Jackman and Garrett Hedlund are already on board the Peter Pan project. Jackman will be playing the role of Blackbeard, while Hedlund has been cast as Hook. As of yet, the part of Peter Pan himself has yet to be cast.

Mara’s most recent parts were in Side Effects, Ain’t Them Bodies Saints and the Oscar-nominated Her. She’s set to reprise the role of Lisbeth Salander in The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo sequel The Girl Who Played with Fire.
