Hugh Jackman was in talks to play Blackbeard in director Joe Wright‘s feature film adaptation of Peter Pan. It has now been confirmed that Jackman will indeed be taking on the villainous role. The film has been known as Pan, but apparently there’s no official title yet.
It was also just announced recently that Garrett Hedlund was cast as a young Captain Hook.
The movie is an origin story that “revolves around an orphan who is taken to the magical world of Neverland where he becomes a hero to the natives and leads a revolt against the evil pirates.”
I am looking forward to see Hugh Jackman as a baddie in a movie and he be great as BlackBeard in the movie, So excited!
