Movie News

Hugh Jackman is trading in his adamantium claws for... a black beard? The Wolverine star is in talks to become Blackbeard in PAN, a new Peter Pan origin film currently in the works.

Jackman will play the role of original nemesis of the boy brought to neverland in this origin story where Peter Pan and Hook are allies. The story is set before Pan and Hook become enemies, with the two of them working together to bring down whatever evil plan Blackbeard/Jackman might be instigating.

Director Joe Wright (HANNA) originally had Javier Bardem in mind, but recently he turned down the role of Blackbeard. Hugh Jackman was brought in after the SKYFALL villain "hooked" off. (See what I did there?)
