Amanda Seyfried, Gone

Joe Wright continues to ramp up his first blockbuster, "Pan," and few more players are coming on board to help spin his magical tale. Amanda Seyfried, Nonso Anozie, Kathy Burke, Jack Charles, Taejoo Na, Kurt Egyiawan, Lewis MacDougall, Leni Zieglmeier and Cara Delevingne are aboard the project that "charts Peter’s backstory from the time he was an orphan spirited away to Neverland and his earliest encounters with some of the people there. In this story, he was friends with the young Hook, who would go on to become his nemesis." No word yet on anyone's roles, but they join Hugh Jackman, Garrett Hedlund, Rooney Mara, Adeel Akhtar and Levi Miller for the movie that starts shooting next week. [Empire/Deadline]

Speaking of model turned actress Delevingne, she is also in talks for "Tulip Fever." An adaptation of the romance novel by Deborah Moggach, the story is set in 1630s Amsterdam and follows the wife of a wealthy merchant who begins an affair with the artist who’s been hired to paint her portrait. Dane DeHaan and Alicia Vikander are already aboard the project, set to be directed by Justin Chadwick. No word on when it will shoot but presumably once DeHaan is finished all his "The Amazing Spider-Man 2" promo duties. [Deadline]

Sacha Baron Cohen's upcoming comedy "Grimsby" has added a new face, with the usually serious Mark Strong landing a role. And he'll be playing the straight man here as a British black-ops spy, who is unlucky to have an English football hooligan for a brother. Louis Leterrier directs the laffer that promises to mix action and comedy. [Deadline]

Lastly, Ben Kingsley, James Badge Dale and Charlotte Le Bon are all in negotiations to join Joseph Gordon-Levitt in Robert Zemeckis' "To Reach The Clouds." The true story drama follows Philippe Petit "the Frenchman who gained worldwide notoriety when he walked between the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center on Aug. 7, 1974." The trio of new talent will play Petit's friend, mentor and lover (respectively), and production will get underway this summer in Montreal. [THR]
