Last month, we reported that Hugh Jackman was in talks to play Blackbeard in Joe Wright‘s Peter Pan origin story, Pan, and now it looks like Garrett Hedlund (TRON Legacy) will be signing on to play Hook.  Per the film’s logline, the story is about “an orphan [who] is taken to the magical world of Neverland, where he becomes the savior of the natives and leads a rebellion against the evil pirates.”  According to Deadline, Hedlund beat out Jack Huston (Boardwalk Empire) and Ezra Miller (The Perks of Being a Wallflower) for the role.  Deadline says “Hook” is a lead role, but doesn’t specify if he’s a captain in this origin story.

Pan will open in 3D on July 17, 2015.  Hedlund will be seen in theaters later this year in William Monahan‘s Mojave and Angelina Jolie‘s Unbroken.
