Rooney Mara to play Tiger Lily in 'Pan'

The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo is headed to the mystical universe of Peter Pan. Sources confirm that Rooney Mara has been cast as the tribal princess Tiger Lily in director Joe Wright’s live-action epic Pan.

Set during World War II, Pan will be a new take on J.M. Barrie’s classic tale. It follows Peter, a young orphan who is kidnapped by pirates and taken to Neverland.

Disney plans a live-action 'Chip 'n Dale Rescue Rangers' origin story

Ch-ch-ch-chip ‘n Dale Rescue Rangers is coming to the big screen.

Millennials of a certain age will remember the short-lived Disney Channel series that ran from 1989 to 1990 and their ear-wormy theme song that seems destined to stick in our collective consciousness until the end of time. Well, commercial director Robert Rugan remembered the rodent gumshoes, too — and pitched a live-action feature to Disney and got the thumbs up to write the update. Mandeville Films (The Muppets, Muppets Most Wanted) is attached to produce the pic, which is in early development.
