Deadline reports that Garrett Hedlund (Tron: Legacy, Unbroken, Inside Llewyn Davis) has been offered the role of Hook in Pan, a new version of the J.M. Barrie story directed by Joe Wright for Warner Bros.
The choices came down to Hedlund and Jack Huston (Boardwalk Empire, American Hustle). Ezra Miller (The Perks of Being A Wallflower) was also considered at one point. Jason Fuchs wrote the script. Greg Berlanti is producing through Berlanti Productions and Sarah Schechter is overseeing for Warner Bros.
Here's a synopsis: An orphan is taken to the magical world of Neverland, where he becomes the savior of the natives and leads a rebellion against evil pirates.
Hugh Jackman will play the villain Blackbeard, a role that Javier Bardem was also up for. The film will be released on July 17, 2015 in 3D.
