By on 10 May, 2011


Aaron Eckhart is set to star as one of fiction’s most famous villains, Captain Hook, in New Line / Warner Bros.‘ darker version of the Peter Pan story – which was originally to be directed by visionary helmer Guillermo del Toro!


Joining Eckhart on the project will be Sean Bean (playing Smee) and AnnaSophia Robb (playing Wendy), with Ben Hibon set to direct from a script penned by Ben Magid – according to ScreenDaily.


The site says:

“Eckhart plays Hook, the Captain Hook character reimagined as a tormented former detective on the trail of a childlike kidnapper. Robb… will portray Wendy, the lone survivor who leaves an asylum to help in the hunt… Sean Bean has been cast as Smee, the chief detective and Hook’s only ally on the force.”


Filming is due to kick off in Eastern Europe this October!
