Garrett Hedlund has reportedly been approached to play Captain Hook in origins story Pan.

The Tron: Legacy star is said to have been offered the role in the Warner Bros film, said The Hollywood Reporter.

Joe Wright, who directed Atonement and Pride And Prejudice, will be taking the reins on the movie, which has been written by Jason Fuchs.

Pan would focus on how Peter Pan and the man who becomes Captain Hook start out as friends, with Hook working as a crewmate on Blackbeard's pirate ship.
