Garrett Hedlund has snagged a lead in Warner Bros. Pictures upcoming version of (Peter) PAN. The story follows an orphan who is taken to Neverland where he leads the natives in a rebellion against the pirates. Hedlund will play Hook, one of the leads, while Hugh Jackman and Javier Bardem are both still in the mix to play the villain Blackbeard.
Jason Fuchs wrote the script that Joe Wright (“Anna Karenina”) will direct. Greg Berlanti will produce.
Hedlund can be seen currently in “Inside Llewyn Davis,” and will next be seen in “Mojave” and “Unbroken.”
He is repped by WME.
