Hugh Jackman once again returns to the big screen, playing Blackbeard in the fantasy film Pan. Directed by Atonement filmmaker Joe Wright, the picture is a visually sumptuous retelling of Peter Pan’s (Levi Miller) origin story. Garrett Hedlund (Tron Legacy) co-stars as Pan’s friend James Hook who aids him in his quest to defeat Blackbeard.
Jackman, who brilliantly embodies the role, says Pan is first and foremost an adventure story. He also adds that audiences are going to see a completely new vision of Pan’s journey, and at its heart the movie should strike a deep emotional chord for fans of the Peter Pan universe.
