He's not known for his villainous roles, but he certainly has the acting chops for it.  Hugh Jackman is now in discussions with Warner Bros. to play Blackbeard the pirate in their Peter Pan origin movie: Pan after Javier Bardem passed on the role.

The origin story revolves around an orphan who is taken to the magical world of Neverland where he becomes a hero to the natives and leads a revolt against the evil pirates.  The idea is that Blackbeard is the film’s main antagonist while Hook would serve as Pan’s close ally before turning bad.

The studio plans to have an open casting for the role of Peter Pan in hopes if discovering new talent.  No final word yet on what actor will play Hook.

About the Author - Jeremy Shane

Jeremy was born in a small mountain village of a strange foreign land called Weystvurginea.  Banishment for liberal views saw him spend years wondering the east coast until he decided to bike to California.  When he saw how long a trip it was, he drove instead.  Now he's living it up in a low humidity climate, sometimes working on his photography and when not, he writes for us covering books (by way of his blog: Reading Realms), gaming, tv, movies, comics, conventions in the SoCal area, and creates a weekly webcomic: A Journey Through Skyrim.  If you look for him offline, start in the L.A. area; online start at: for his profile and all the social networks he's on... or just follow him on twitter, he seems to be on there a lot: @jeremyshane.
