Bardem set for Peter Pan role?

Javier Bardem is tipped to star as the villain in the new Peter Pan origins movie.

The former Bond baddie is wanted for the role of Captain Blackbeard in the Warner Bros film, reported Deadline.

Javier, 44, has apparently already been offered the part in Pan, but it isn't yet known whether he will be signing on the dotted line.

The movie was written by Jason Fuchs and tells the story of Peter Pan's early days when he was an orphan who was taken to Neverland, and ended up leading a rebellion against the pirates.

Oscar-winner Javier would play the main villain, who is the leader of the evil gang.

Earlier this month it was reported that award-winning British filmmaker Joe Wright was in talks to direct the movie about author JM Barrie's famous character.
