"Pan," Warner Bros.' Peter Pan origin story, has been pushed back to an October 9 release, Deadline reports.
"As you might expect, the fantastical story of Peter Pan involves very complex effects, and I did not want to compromise on quality in finishing the film," said director Joe Wright in a statement. "This allows me and my team the time to complete the movie and tell the story the way it should be told."
The film was originally slated for July 24, putting it up against other summer blockbusters like "Terminator Genisys," "Ted 2," "Ant-Man" and "Minions." In its new date, "Pan" will compete with Universal Pictures' "Steve Jobs" and Relativity’s newest film, tentatively titled "Kidnap."
In the film, Blackbeard (Hugh Jackman) kidnaps young Peter (Levi Miller) and other orphans from Edwardian London to work the mines in Neverland. There, the boy teams with Hook (Garrett Hedlund) to escape, oppose their captor and discover his destiny.
"Pan" also stars Rooney Mara as Tiger Lily, Adeel Akhtar as Smee, Taejoo Na as Kwahu, Nonso Anozie as Bishop, Kathy Burke as Mother Barnabas, Kurt Egyiawan as Murray, Lewis MacDougall as Nibs, Leni Zieglmeier as Wendy Darling, Jack Charles as The Chief/Tiger Lily’s father and Amanda Seyfried as Mary.
