Director Joe Wright’s “gritty Peter Pan origin story,” titled Pan, looks to have found its Captain Hook in the form of Garrett Hedlund.
The Hollywood Reporter has the news that Warner Bros. has offered the Tron: Legacy and Inside Llewyn Davis actor the role of the fictional pirate in Pan.
Although the character is best known as Peter Pan’s arch-nemesis, that’s not exactly the case in the film. Instead, Pan chronicles the early years of friendship between Pan and Hook as they serve together on Blackbeard’s ship. Hugh Jackman is said to be in line to play Blackbeard.
Pan is currently scheduled for release on July 17, 2015.
