Hugh Jackman has started production on his new film, Pan, with director Joe Wright. He plays Blackbeard the Pirate in the reimagining of Peter Pan, and this is the look he’s going for. He posted the photo on his Instagram page, and it looks like he’s going to make a crazy-looking pirate.
The movie also stars Garett Hudlund as Captain Hook, Ronney Mara as Tiger Lily, Leni Zieglmeier as Wendy Darling, and Levi Miller as Pan. The was written by Jason Fuchs, and the film will be a new take on the classic story. It’s set during WWII and “follows an orphan who is kidnapped by pirates and brought to Neverland, where he discovers he’s destined to save the land from the pirate Blackbeard.” Apparently, Pan and Hook actually team up to take down Blackbeard.
