A Fife firm specialising in vintage items has secured another Hollywood role by providing props for new movie Pan, which goes on general release in the UK today, writes Emma Newlands.

Scaramanga provided iron padlocks for what is a prequel to Scots author JM Barrie’s fairytale Peter Pan.

The items feature onscreen to lock a dungeon door in a scene featuring Levi Miller as title character Peter.

This follows Scaramanga supplying the antique brass padlocks in Bilbo’s house in The Hobbit, and more than 100 medieval-looking pieces for Disney hit Maleficent starring Angelia Jolie.

In terms of the business’s latest star appearance, owner Carl Morenikeji said: “I caught one of the preview screenings last weekend and it shivered my timbers to see our padlocks used on the big screen.

“Peter Pan is a classic children’s story and the new film adds a dark, moody twist to what has always been an action-packed story.”
