Javier Bardem has reportedly been offered the lead villain role in the Peter Pan origins project “Pan” at Warner Bros. Pictures.
In the film, an orphan is taken to the magical world of Neverland where he becomes the savior of the natives and leads a rebellion against evil pirates.
Bardem would play the pirate captain Blackbeard, not Pan’s famed nemesis Captain Hook. Jason Fuchs penned the script based on JM Barrie’s classic tale.
Joe Wright is in negotiations to direct, while Greg Berlanti is producing.
