Hugh Jackman signs on as Blackbeard in Pan

HUGH JACKMAN has officially signed up to play pirate villain BLACKBEARD in a new PETER PAN movie.

The Les Miserables star has been linked to the role in director Joe Wright's origin film, Pan, ever since Javier Bardem dropped out of the project last year (13), and now his casting has been confirmed.

The film's lead has yet to be cast, but Inside Llewyn Davis actor Garrett Hedlund has reportedly been offered the role of Peter Pan's arch-foe Captain Hook, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

The movie, inspired by author J.M.Barrie's classic tale, is scheduled to hit cinemas next summer (15).
