"Tron Legacy" and "Inside Llewyn Davis" actor Garrett Hedlund has scored the offer to play the key role of Hook in Joe Wright's live-action Peter Pan original tale "Pan" at Warner Bros. Pictures.

Jason Fuchs penned this new take on the J.M. Barrie, 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 led by Blackbeard.

Hedlund beat out Jack Huston and Ezra Miller for the role. In this version, Hook is one of Pan's allies who ultimately ends up turning against him - ultimately becoming the villain Captain Hook.

Hugh Jackman is reportedly set to play the Blackbeard role. Greg Berlanti is producing and a June 16th 2015 is planned.
