Amanda Seyfried is taking a trip to Neverland.

The actress will be joining Warner Bros.’ as-yet-untitled Peter Pan adaptation, directed by Joe Wright. The adventure re-imagines the origin stories of Peter, Hook, Tiger Lily, and the other characters in J.M. Barrie’s classic fairy tale.

Seyfried will play Mary alongside Hugh Jackman as Blackbeard, Garrett Hedlund as Hook, Rooney Mara as Tiger Lily, and newcomer Levi Miller as Peter.

Jason Fuchs wrote the screenplay, with Greg Berlanti, Paul Webster, Sarah Schechter, and Tim Lewis serving as producers.

Principal photography begins April 28 in England. The film is slated for a July 17, 2015 release.
