Last week I spent an evening in the company of the exceptionally talented Oscar winning composer, Dario Marianelli. An evening full of film clips, humble beginnings and very funny anecdotes, it marked the last in BAFTA’s season of ‘Conversations with Screen Composers’ at the Royal Albert Hall.
Dario very kindly answered some questions for The Hollywood News before the event, including the origins of his celebrated relationship with director Joe Wright, wanting to be like Clint Mansell when he grows up and if he’d ever score a superhero film…
Thn: How did your initial collaboration with Joe Wright come about, and what is it specifically about the director that inspires your continued working relationship?

After a seemingly endless series of setbacks and roadblocks -- most noticeably the last-minute departure of leading man Charlie Hunnam -- the big-screen adaptation of E.L. James's best-selling erotic novel "Fifty Shades of Grey" has begun principal photography, even though the eventual movie will be released more than a year from now, over Valentine's Day weekend 2015.
Author James posted a photo from the movie's Vancouver set on Instagram yesterday. In the teaser image, captioned "Action!," you can see the name of director Sam Taylor-Johnson, alongside that of cinematographer Seamus McGarvey, which actually makes us wonder if this means McGarvey won't be back to photograph Joss Whedon's art-house movie "Avengers: Age of Ultron" (he shot the first film and is known mostly for his collaborations with director Joe Wright).

(Cbr) Warner Bros. is going a different direction when it comes to the villain of its Peter Pan project. Instead pitting the youthful hero against Captain Hook, he’ll test his skills against another infamous pirate: Blackbeard. Deadline reports that Javier Barden has been offered the role of the infamous pirate in the new film directed by Joe Wright ("Hanna", "Atonement"), written by Jason Fuchs ("Ice Age: Continental Drift") and produced by Greg Berlanti ("Arrow"). According to Deadline’s sources, the script finds orphaned Peter Pan somehow making his way to Neverland, where he becomes the leader of the Lost Boys. Soon enough »

Washington, November 19: Javier Bardem has been offered to play
pirate villain Blackbeard in the upcoming 'Peter Pan' film, it has been revealed.
According to Deadline.com, producers are eager to cast Bardem as the main villain in the film, Contactmusic reported.
The new adaptation will serve as an origin film based on the fairytale by J. M. Barrie and it will tell the story of a young boy who is kidnapped and taken to the fantasy world of Neverland.
British filmmaker Joe Wright is expected to take charge of the project and if Bardem accepts the role, he will play the captain of the group of pirates battling. »

The story follows an orphan who "is taken to the magical world of Neverland, where he becomes the savior of the natives and leads a rebellion against evil pirates."
Bardem is a fantastic actor who always makes for an awesome, intense villain. I hope he ends up plauing Blackbeard because he'd be perfect for it! »

After playing a bad guy in Skyfall (on Netflix Instant now) and No Country for Old Men, the stellar Javier Bardem (who can be seen with wild hair in The Counselor right now) is desired for yet another villain role. Deadline reports Warner Bros. has made an offer to the Spanish actor to play the villainous pirate Blackbeard in Joe Wright's recently announced Pan, the adaptation of J.M. Barrie's classic tale that will be an origin story for the green tights-clad, flying hero. This would be the first time that we see the hero face off against Blackbeard on the big screen since most of the iterations have used Captain Hook as the villain. In the script by Jason Fuchs, we will see how an orphan boy becomes the fantasy hero Peter Pan, and saves a group of young natives from having their land taken over by some pirates. »

After stealing every scene he was in as the villain in last year's triumphant James Bond outing "Skyfall" (he didn't chew the scenery as much as gobbled it up whole), Javier Bardem could be back in bad guy mode for Warner Bros' upcoming "Peter Pan" tale "Pan." But he wouldn't play the villain you were probably expecting...
According to the report on Deadline, Bardem wouldn't be playing Captain Hook, the famous adversary of Peter Pan; instead he would be playing the real life historical figure of Blackbeard. (Blackbeard was recently integrated into a fantastical story courtesy of "Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides;" in that film the villainous pirate was played by a wonderfully over-the-top Ian McShane.) This is kind of odd, no? Although considering the "origin story" conceit of this take on "Peter Pan," we could very easily see Blackbeard, say, lose his hand in the third act »

We're looking forward to a 100 percent increase in preadolescent night terrors, now that Javier Bardem is rumored to be playing Blackbird the pirate in director Joe Wright's Peter Pan prequel Pan. You know, versus all those other Peter Pan movies? Knowing how horrifying Bardem can become with just a bowl cut or a beige jacket, we can only imagine how grotesque he will be with, say, an eye patch, a smoking beard and the desire to murder children. »

Joe Wright (Atonement, Hanna) has been tapped to helm the Peter Pan movie Pan, which is described as "an origin story". Now, I don't know if this is brilliant casting or type casting, but Javier Bardem (No Country for Old Men, Skyfall) has been offered the role Blackbeard in the movie.
Jason Fuchs (Ice Age: Continental Drift) is writing the script for the upcoming adaptation of J.M. Barrie's classic, which will follow an orphan who is taken to Neverland, saves the natives, leads a rebellion against the pirates and becomes a hero.
Joe Wright is a mixed bag for me. He's made some pretty solid movies but nothing that has wowed me. This sounds like it could be promising, but it also sounds like it could be just another attempt by a studio to launch a franchise. Still, at the very least the film will probably be gorgeous, with practical sets and minimal CGI. »

Javier Bardem gives good villain. He’s put in memorably slimy, sleazy or psychopathic performances in the likes of No Country For Old Men, Skyfall and, to a less evil (but no less weird) extent, The Counsellor. Warner Bros. clearly wants some of his malevolent mojo, as the studio is now offering him the role of Captain Blackbeard in its gestating look at the early days of Peter Pan.Anna Karenina’s Joe Wright is negotiating to direct the film, with Jason Fuchs providing the script. Here, J.M. Barrie’s famous character will be seen as an orphan transported to Neverland, where he stops aging and becomes the leader of the natives in their rebellion against pirate forces.Bardem, should he take the role – and he may feel that he doesn’t want to portray another bad guy for a while – would be Blackbeard, the Pirate Captain who decides that »
Just as there are currently several Lance Armstrong biopics in various states of development, there are also multiple Peter Pan-inspired projects in the works. The Hunger Games director Gary Ross was reportedly in talks to helm Peter and the Starcatchers, while Channing Tatum and producer Joe Roth are said to be working on Neverland, with Gavin O’Conner (Warrior) sought to direct.
The third project is known as Pan, and has Hanna director Joe Wright in negotiations to direct a script by Jason Fuchs (Ice Age: Continental Drift), with Arrow‘s Greg Berlanti producing. While there is still no word on who could play Pan for Wright, (should the director end up on board) Warner Bros. sounds confident that the project will ...

If there’s one thing that we all know Javier Bardem can do really, really well, it’s that he can take a villainous role and turn it into a character that will make your skin crawl. Anyone who’s seen the Coen Bros.’ No Country for Old Men can tell you that his Oscar-winning performance as Anton Chigurh is frightening and unforgettable. He was also one of the more memorable parts of the otherwise bland Skyfall, where he played the sly antagonist Silva.
Today we have word from The Playlist that Bardem might be up to his old villainous tricks once again as he’s been offered the role of Blackbeard in Joe Wright’s upcoming film Pan, an origin story of the infamous Peter Pan. To expand upon that a bit, new details tell us that the plot will follow an orphan to Neverland, where he fights pirates, »

Briefly: Warner Bros. has Joe Wright (Atonement, Hanna) in talks to direct the studio’s new Peter Pan origin story. While the idea of a modern, gritty Peter Pan origin story isn’t the most appealing thing (Warners has been said to want to “give Pan the Batman Begins treatment”) the idea of Joe Wright directing goes a long way towards redeeming […] »

Javier Bardem has reportedly been offered the lead villain role in the Peter Pan origins project "Pan" at Warner Bros. Pictures.
In the film, 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.
Bardem would play the pirate captain Blackbeard, not Pan's famed nemesis Captain Hook. Jason Fuchs penned the script based on Jm Barrie’s classic tale.

Javier Bardem will not play the most iconic Pan villain Captain Hook, but instead will personify Blackbeard. The story revolves around orphan boy Peter, who is taken for the first time to the magical world of Neverland, where he joins the natives, leading them in a rebellion against a group of evil pirates.
Javier Bardem has reportedly been offered a lead role in the upcoming Peter Pan film.
In the Warner Bros origin story, an orphan is taken to Neverland and leads a rebellion against the pirates, reports Deadline.
Bardem is said to have agreed to play the villainous Blackbeard in the film, which is also expected to feature Captain Hook.
Both Disney and Sony are also believed to be working Peter Pan movies.
It was recently reported that Joe Wright (Hanna, Atonement) was in negotiations to direct a new "Peter Pan" movie for Warner Bros. It seems that the project is coming together quickly, because now comes word that Javier Bardem (Skyfall) is in talks to play the pirate Blackbeard, the lead villain. The script is written by Jason Fuchs (Ice Age: Continental Drift) and focuses on an orgphan taken to the magical world of Neverland, where he becomes the savior of the natives and leads a rebellion against evil pirates. Only time will tell why Captain Hook is not involved. Meanwhile, Columbia Pictures its own Peter Pan origin story, called "Neverland," which is being produced by Channing Tatum and Joe Roth (Alice in Wonderland). »
It was reported earlier this week that Joe Wright ( Hanna , Atonement ) was in negotiations to direct a new untitled Peter Pan Origin Film , and now comes word that Warner Bros. is eyeing Javier Bardem ( No Country for Old Men , Skyfall ) for the lead villain role - the pirate Blackbeard. Jason Fuchs will be providing the screenplay for the adaptation of J.M. Barrie's classic character with "Arrow" executive producer Greg Berlanti producing under his Berlanti Productions and Sarah Schechter overseeing for Warner Bros. According to Deadline , Fuchs' script has an orphan taken to the magical world of Neverland, where he becomes the savior of the natives and leads a rebellion against evil pirates. The question, of course, is why they are going with Blackbeard and »
There is a brand new Peter Pan themed movie being set up at Warner Brothers, and the studio are apparently chasing The Counsellor actor Javier Bardem to lead up the villains in the piece, playing the character of Blackbeard. Hanna helmer Joe Wright is directing the film, which is said to be an origin story based around the Neverland world from Jm Barrie’s books.
Deadline report that the film revolves around ‘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’. Jason Fuchs, who penned Ice Age: Continental Drift for Fox, has written the screenplay.
So, do we think that Bardem will make a good pirate? I kinda like the idea of the Spaniard playing another baddie after his brilliant turn as Silva in last year’s Skyfall
