Earlier this week, we reported that Joe Wright (Anna Karenina) was in negotiations with Warner Bros. to helm their Peter Pan picture, Pan.  Now, it looks like the studio has offered the lead villain role of Blackbeard the pirate to one Javier Bardem (Skyfall).  The Jason Fuchs script centers on the title 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, of which Blackbeard is their captain.  If Bardem signs on for the deal, it would put another feather in his villainous cap that includes Skyfall, No Country for Old Men, and The Counselor.  Once the villain is locked, we’ll likely hear more casting news on the protagonist’s side of things.  (Via Deadline)
