Jude Law is set to play Captain Hook in Disney’s live-action Peter Pan & Wendy, directed by David Lowery. The film will be a retelling of the classic 1953 animated film. Lowery previously directed the live-action Disney film Pete’s Dragon in 2016.
This will be the fourth attempt to tell a variation of the Peter Pan story in live-action form. The first was Steven Spielberg 1991 film Hook, which starred Robin Williams, Julia Roberts, and Dustin Hoffman as Captain Hook. The 2003 film Peter Pan had Jason Isaacs taking on the Captain Hook role, followed in 2015 with the film Pan, which starred Hugh Jackman.
Jude Law will be joining Ever Anderson as Wendy and Alexander Molony as Peter Pan in the film written by Toby Holbrooks and based on the J.M. Barrie novel.
