If rumours are true, Javier Bardem is wanted for the role of Blackbeard in the new adaption of Peter Pan by director Joe Wright.
We announced earlier this week that Joe Wright is to bring out a new version of the classic children’s tale Peter Pan, and that Jason Fuchs (Ice Age: Continental Drift) would be working on the screenplay.
Now, according to Deadline, Javier Bardem is sought to play the villainous pirate Blackbeard for the film. Bardem has a history of playing bad guys in big films, just watch his turn in last year’s James Bond movie Skyfall, or his Oscar-winning performance in No Country for Old Men.
Peter Pan is the age old tale of young orphan who is taken to a magical world called Never Land. There he leads a gang of children who never age called the Lost Boys to defeat the pirates who run amok in Never Land.
The addition of Javier Bardem to the cast of Peter Pan will definitely be an interesting and great one.
