Cara Delevingne has reportedly been cast in the forthcoming ‘Peter Pan’ remake, where she’ll be playing a mermaid.

While this isn’t the first time Cara has tried her hand at acting - she’s previously starred in ‘Anna Karenina’ and the forthcoming ‘Kids In Love’, as well as ‘Face of an Angel’, a new film inspired by the Amanda Knox trial - this will be her biggest film role to date.

A source told The Sun on Sunday: “It’s a massive role for Cara to land considering she is a relatively unknown actress.

“It will be quite a demanding role as there will be a lot of underwater work and stunts. Filming underwater could scare a lot of actresses but Cara is definitely up for the challenge.”

Cara will appear in ‘Pan’, which is currently scheduled for a summer 2015 release, opposite Amanda Seyfried and Hugh Jackman, while child actor Levi Miller has been cast in the lead role of Peter Pan.

The film is to be directed by Joe Wright, who previously cast the model in ‘Anna Karenina’.

The source added: “Joe is delighted to have signed up Cara. He considers her to have real star potential and a big career beyond the catwalk.”

Meanwhile, when she’s not splashing about trying to get into the mermaid mindset, Cara has had us all talking about her romantic life, and is currently dating actress Michelle Rodriguez.

The pair were first spotted cosying up together at a basketball game, and have since been seen together a number of times.

More recently, the pair were photographed outside a car in a lip-lock in Miami, before heading off to a music festival together.
