Jackman to join Warner Bros. Peter Pan

After last week’s announcement that Garrett Hedlund would be playing Captain Hook, it was announced that Wolverine star Hugh Jackman has signed up as Blackbeard in the new live-action Peter Pan film.

The Warner Bros’ production, to be directed by Atonement’s Joe Wright, has yet to cast its eponymous hero - an open casting call for a 10-12 year old boy is currently underway. The story has a different spin compared to previous adaptations - our boy hero is swept away to Neverland as an orphan, who grows up to lead a rebellion against a band of pirates led by Blackbeard.

The film has a scheduled release of 17th July 2015.
