Shortly after hearing that Garrett Hedlund has signed on to take the lead as Hook in Warner Bros.’ Pan, confirmation now comes that Hugh Jackman will be joining him for next year’s summer blockbuster.
It was reported last year that Jackman was in talks for the role of Blackbeard, after Warner Bros. had previously sought Javier Bardem for the part. They soon then pursued Jackman for the part, and now he’s officially closed his deal and will be starring alongside Hedlund next year.
The Black Listed script comes from Jason Fuchs (Ice Age: Continental Drift), with Wright’s past collaborator Paul Webster (Atonement, Pride & Prejudice) producing alongside Greg Berlanti (Green Lantern, Arrow).
The studio has said that the film remains untitled »
