Tron: Legacy co-star Garrett Hedlund has landed the lead role of Hook in director Joe Wright's Peter Pan film, Pan. It will be a new take on the J.M. Barrie classic novel. He will join Hugh Jackman who will be playing Blackbeard.
According to Deadline, the role came down to three actors, Hedlund, Boardwalk Empire‘s Jack Huston, and Ezra Miller from The Perks Of Being A Wallflower. Personally I think they should have went with Huston. I'm not sure why they went with Hedlund. He's a talented actor, but I don't really see him in the role of Hook.
The script is coming from Jason Fuchs, and the story follows an orphan who is taken to the magical world of Neverland, where he becomes the savior of the natives and leads a rebellion against evil pirates.
Warner Bros has set a release date of June 16th, 2015, and it will be shot in 3D.
