Javier Bardem offered Blackbeard role


Actor Javier Bardem has been offered the chance to portray pirate villain Blackbeard in a new "Peter Pan" film.

The Spanish star went bad for "No Country for Old Men" and James Bond movie "Skyfall," and now producers are eager to cast him as the main villain in Pan, according to Deadline.

The new adaptation will serve as an origin film based on the fairytale by J. M. Barrie and will tell the story of a young boy who is kidnapped and taken to the fantasy world of Neverland.

British filmmaker Joe Wright is expected to take charge of the project.

If Bardem accepts the role, he will play the captain of the group of pirates doing battle with Peter Pan.

I can't remember what it is called, but there is a book where Peter Pan is a pirate and the bad guy and Captain Hook is a British Royal Navy officer trying to catch or kill him. I think that would make for a better movie than the worn out, overdone, Disney classic.

If it's with Anthony Bardem, I would always consider seeing it just to watch him become another person and not a caricature.
