‘Tron Legacy’ star Garrett Hedlund lands Captain Hook role in Warner’s ‘Pan’ arriving in 2015

The new Peter Pan adaptation by Warner Bros has cast the leading role, tapping Tron: Legacy star Garrett Hedlund as Captain Hook, who is not the villain in this film version.

Garrett Hedlund as Sam Flynn Tron Legacy photoDeadline reports that Hedlund beat out “Boardwalk Empire‘s Jack Huston (currently in American Hustle), with Ezra Miller from The Perks Of Being A Wallflower also in the mix.

Director Joe Wright will helm the latest interpretation of the J.M. Barrie classic tale with a script by Jason Fuchs, and  Greg Berlanti is producing under his Berlanti Productions banner, and Sarah Schechter is overseeing for Warners.

In Fuchs’ script, 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.

X-Men and The Wolverine star Hugh Jackman reportedly will play Blackbeard, the captain of the bad guys, chosen ahead of Javier Bardem, who had also been mentioned for that role. 

Warner Bros has set a June 16, 2015, release date for the 3D-shot film.
