Arr! Then again, as Hugh Jackman has such an enchanting singing voice, one should probably say: aharrrr!
The Academy Award nominated actor will, as previously rumored, play the villainous and in all probability awesomely bearded pirate Captain Blackbeard in Warner Brothers’ Pan.
The Peter Pan origin movie (imagine Batman Begins but with a flying teenager in the leading role, dressed in green shorts... or better don’t!) will be directed by Joe Wright, the filmmaker behind such classy costume porn as Pride & Prejudice, Atonement and Anna Karenina.
Just yesterday we reported that On the Road star was offered the role of Captain Hook in the movie. As Blackbeard is the main baddie, I presume that Hook will slowly develop into Peter Pan’s nemesis in the course of the movie.
Be that as it may, a pretty good cast is looming on the horizon.
Let’s see who they find for the title role!
Pan will be released July 17, 2015.
