Garrett Hedlund Tapped for Captain Hook Role in Warner Bros. ‘Pan’

Hugh Jackman is in talks to also star

After reading actors over the weekend, Joe Wright and Warner Bros. have tapped Garrett Hedlund to play Captain Hook in the Peter Pan origin tale “Pan.”

Hugh Jackman is already in negotiations to play the main villain, Blackbeard.

Sources say an open casting will be held to fill the role of Pan, as the character is between 10 and 12 years old.

Jason Fuchs penned the script with Greg Berlanti producing. Sarah Schechter is overseeing for the studio.

The film will be a new take on the classic story. It is set in World War II and follows an orphan named Peter who is kidnapped by pirates and brought to Neverland, where he discovers he’s destined to save the land from the pirate Blackbeard. This version will also see Hook as Pan’s friend.

WB dated the film for July 17, 2015 and sees it as a franchise that can appeal to the “Harry Potter” and “Lord of the Rings” fanbase.

The WME and Brillstein Entertainment-repped Hedlund was most recently seen in CBS Films’ pic “Inside Llewyn Davis.” Deadline Hollywood first reported the news.
