Looks like the Pan casting won't be stepping into the fire this time.
After drawing a heap of controversy for casting Rooney Mara as the American Indian character Tiger Lily, filmmakers have moved on with their next bit of casting- the lead.
So who will play the ageless Peter Pan? A virtual unknown named
And the controversy has emerged!
Yesterday we reported that Rooney Mara has been signed to play Tiger Lily in Joe Wright's upcoming film Pan alongside Hugh Jackman & Garrett Hedlund!
The movie has definitely piqued our interest and, unfortunately, the interest of others.
Well, people are SUPER unhappy that Rooney has been casted as Tiger Lily because she is the Native American character in Peter Pan!
While Rooney is an incredibly talented actress, she is clearly not Native American!
People have suggested that Joe should have casted an ethnic actress in the role, which is a VERY valid point.
But it also got us curious as to who else has played the iconic role, and it seems there have been quite a few!
Ch-ch-check out the other ladies who've played Tiger Lily …AFTER THE JUMP!!!
Hmmm…this is pretty innneresting!
Rooney Mara has, reportedly, been cast as Tiger Lily in the upcoming origin tale of Peter Pan, titled Pan!
The film also stars Hugh Jackman as Blackbeard, aka the MAIN villain, and Garrett Hedlund as the infamous Hook!
Pan is going to be a "different take" on Peter's story and will follow the tale of an orphan boy who is taken, by magic obvi, to Neverland where he squares off against Blackbeard!
Sounds like fun to us!
We can't WAIT to see Hugh in the role of a villain, but if we're being honest, we can't quite get Rooney as Lisbeth Salander quite out of our heads…
What do U think of Rooney as Tiger Lily?

Move over, Dustin Hoffman! A new captain is in and he's eXXXtra hot!
Dreamy Garrett Hedlund has been offered the role of the deliciously villainous Hook for the upcoming flick, Pan!
Garrett beat out the likes of Boardwalk Empire's Jack Huston AND Perks of Being A Wallflower's Ezra Miller for the portrayal of a hunkier Hook in the new spin on the literary classic to be directed by Joe Wright.
Evil and seXXXy?! We're in!
The big screen, epic adventure will tell the story of an orphan who is taken to the magical Neverland, where he finds himself saving natives and at the forefront of a rebellion against some naughty pirates.
No doubt this is a major departure from the brooding, sweet Dean Moriarty in On The Road and the heroic Sam in Tron, but we have all the faith that he'll be wearing one less hand realllllllll well.
Come to think of it, we imagine Garrett could pretty much rock any look and leave us drooling! LOLz!
Garrett Hedlund—we have a pretty good feeling about what Santa's bringing you for Christmas this year!
Kirsten Dunst was caught getting in some last minute holiday shopping solo at a music store in El Lay on Friday.
She was adorably snapped with a salesman—looking at über expensive guitars and drum sets for what we think is Garrett's possible present!
Here's hoping her hunky BF was a good boy this year…
Because only the nicest of men get to make beautiful music with Miz Dunst!
Ch-ch-check out more shots of Kirsten shopping (below!)

Oh NOzzz!!! What happened!!
Kirsten Dunst was spotted leaving dinner in Hollywood with her boyfriend, fellow actor Garrett Hedlund, and Kirsten was sporting an injured wrist!
We wonder if all the workouts she's been doing, both on her own and with friends like Isla Fisher, has something to do with it!!!
Regardless of her wrist, Kirsten looked like she was happy to be with her beau, but looks like she miiiiiight have gotten a bit frustrated with her seatbelt.
No shame in asking your sexXxii man for help, KiKi!
The pair are so adorable that it's so pleasing to see them out and about together!
Though we do have to wonder if Garrett is upset he was passed over for 50 Shades of Grey…
It looks like he's not too bothered by that fact!
We just hope Kirsten's injury heals soon!!
