It seems as though lately movies are coming in waves and one of the next waves is Peter Pan-based films. We’ve known about the production of Joe Wright’s Pan for quite some time now, but the details were a little murky. Now we’re getting some inside scoop on the upcoming release.
EW just released some photos of Hugh Jackman’s pirate look in Pan. Except, surprise! Hugh Jackman is not playing Captain Hook – he’s playing Blackbeard. Wright explains this by stating, “This isn’t exactly the Netherland story you know”; this movie will be a reinterpretation of the classic Peter Pan story. Don’t worry Hook fans – your favorite captain will still be in the movie, however he will be played by Garrett Hedlund.
Check out a few of the first photos of Hugh Jackman as Blackbeard on EW’s Website.
Aside from Jackman and Hedlund, the cast includes Amanda Seyfried as Mary, Rooney Mara as Tiger Lily, Levi Miller as Peter Pan, and many more stars. The film is set for release on July 17, 2015.
