Terrence Stamp Gets Role in Fairy Tale Inspired Modern Thriller 'Pan'
Towards the end of last year it was revealed that Ben Hibon, the man behind that animated sequence where Hermione tells The Tale of The Three Brothers and the history/myth of the Deathly Hallows in the first part of the epic two-part Harry Potter franchise finale, would be at the helm of a contemporary crime thriller simply called Pan that puts a thriller twist on the classic tale of Peter Pan from J.M. Barrie. Then we learned later Aaron Eckhart would play tormented former detective Captain Hook on the trail of a childlike kidnapper, and now Moviehole has learned that veteran actor Terrence Stamp has joined the cast as well.
Personally, I'm hoping Stamp is playing the killer which Hook is chasing, but his role hasn't been revealed just yet. Either way, Sean Bean is playing Smee, the chief detective and Hook's only ally on the police force while AnnaSophia Robb (Soul Surfer) is playing Wendy, the lone survivor who leaves an asylum to help in the hunt of this mysterious killer. With this cast, I'm certainly intrigued, and I'm hoping this turns out to be a dark thriller in the same vein as Se7en, especially with the links to the classic fairytale. Hopefully there's more subtle references to the old story in the rest of the film rather than the obvious character names.

Hey this premise was originally planned in DC comics Fables. They had to scrap it because of copyright by hospital.

"Im Petay Pan, Peetaaay Paaaan. Look at my wishing tree, c'mon. Have a little sip of the Jesus Juice, that's it, that's it..." Is this based on MJ's life?
