Open auditions for boys to play the lead role of Peter in the Warner Bros remake of the classic Peter Pan!
Have you always wanted to star in a blockbuster, big budget movie? Here is your shot because Warner Bros is casting “Pan” which is supposed to be one of next summers big summer blockbusters.
2015 is going to be a big movie year with lots of blockbusters scheduled to be released that summer. One of those huge films will be the new Peter Pan movie called “Pan” which is a new story about Peter Pan, his Lost Boys and Hook. Hugh Jackman has already been cast to play the main villain Blackbeard and the movie is holding open auditions and online auditions for the lead role of Peter.
The film is being written by J.M. Barrie and Jason Fuchs and will be filming in London this summer. The open auditions for boys will be held in London on the 23rd. Producers for the movie are specifically looking for boys who are 11 to 13 years of age and at least 5’4″ to star. The movie will be filmed in 3D and should be visually spectacular.
The entire storyline has not yet been released but the information floating around suggests that Hook will be a part of the film, but not the villain which suggests that the new flick may take place prior to the original Peter Pan or may be a completely new take on one of our favorite classics.
Can you see it? Hugh Jackman will play the pirate Blackbeard!
The role of the lead, Peter, is described as:
Peter is a courageous & adventurous orphaned boy living in a world of fantasy and dreams, which sometimes leads him into trouble
Think you have what it takes to bring Peter Pan to life on the big screen? You are welcome to find out by attending the open casting call or through an online audition process.
The film is currently in the casting and pre-production stages and will begin production in a few months, in mid 2014. Anyone who they do cast for the lead role of Peter will need to be available for filming in London, UK this summer and fall.
Open auditions will be held on February 23rd
Boys 11 to 13, any ethnicity
Wembley Arena, London, HA9 0AA
If attending the open auditions you will be required to line up for your chance beginning at 9 AM. The film’s producers will not be allowing anyone to lineup overnight. Those that did not get in line by 11 AM, will be out of luck because their line up times are between 9 AM and 11 AM with auditions beginning at 10 AM.
There are some guidelines. All kids must come with an adult, preferably a parent or legal guardian. They will only allow one person to accompany the kids into the audition and those coming are discouraged from bringing extra guests as they will not be allowed into the venue. Since this is such a huge project, I would imagine that they are gearing up to handle tons of people and want to keep the crowds down as much as they can.
If you do not live in London, you still have the ability to tryout for the part through the website that casting directors created for this purpose.
Those interested in other roles or roles as background extras for “Pan” will need to wait a bit as those casting calls will get released when the movie goes into production this summer.
No word yet on who else will be cast alongside Hugh Jackman, could it be you?
