Jude Law has been tipped to star as Captain Hook in a Disney live action Peter Pan movie.

Disney is said to be working on an adaptation of its hit 1953 animated movie for a theatrical release.


Variety report that Jude Law is in talks to play Captain Hook in the film, which is set to be titled 'Peter Pan & Wendy'.

Further casting is currently rumoured to include Yara Shahidi as Tinker Bell with Alexander Molony as Peter Pan and Ever Anderson as Wendy.

The new film is directed by David Lowery who is also penning the screenplay together with Toby Halbrooks.

Based on the iconic story by J M Barrie, Peter Pan tells the adventures of a free-spirited and mischievous young boy who can fly and never grows up.

Peter Pan is the latest live-action adaption of a classic animated Disney movie.

Last year saw Aladdin and The Lion King both enjoy box office takings in excess of $1 billion while Mulan is due for release later this year and an adaption of The Little Mermaid is currently filming in the UK.
