Chris Terrio (ARGO) has signed on to provide an update to David Goyer's script for the movie. The superhero movie re-teams Terrio with Ben Affleck, who is set to play Batman, opposite Henry Cavill.
Affleck will star as Batman opposite Cavill, who will reprise the role of Superman/Clark Kent. As recently reported, Gal Gadot will also play the iconic Wonder Woman. MAN OF STEEL stars Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne and Diane Lane are also set to return.
From a script by Jason Fuchs, based on J.M. Barrie's Peter Pan tale, PAN follows an orphan into Neverland, where he saves the natives and starts an uprising against the pirates, who are led by Blackbeard. Captain Hook is also set to make an appearance as "Pan's close ally before turning bad." The film is being produced by Greg Berlanti under Berlanti Productions, with Joe Wright in talks to direct.
