[Movies] Hugh Jackman To Play Blackbeard In Pan
Posted by Joseph Lee on 12.20.2013



Variety reports that Hugh Jackman will play Blackbeard in Warner Bros' Peter Pan origin film Pan. Joe Wright will direct from a script by Jason Fuchs. Originally, Javier Bardem was considered for the role but he passed. Ryan Gosling was also considered. This would be Jackman's first real villain role after toeing the line in Prisoners. Before signing on to Pan, he was considering several roles, including as the antagonist in Warner Bros' The Incredible Mr. Limpet remake.

The film will focus on an orphan who is taken to Neverland where he becomes a hero and leads a revolt against the pirates. Blackbeard will be the main villain while Hook will be Pan's ally before turning bad.

The studio will have open casting for Peter Pan and find someone for the role. They are looking for an actress in her mid-20s to play Tiger Lily. Greg Berlanti is producing and Sarah Schechter will oversee for WB. Jackman is currently shooting the film Chappie for Sony.
