Disney is gearing up for their next live-action remake of one of their beloved animated films. Peter Pan and Wendy will be directed by Pete’s Dragon helmer David Lowery with a script he co-wrote with Toby Halbrook. So far, we know that Alexander Molony and Ever Anderson will star as Peter Pan and Wendy in the live-action remake from Disney.

Variety is now reporting that Jude Law is in talks to play the villainous Captain Hook in the upcoming Peter Pan and Wendy film. If Law were to sign on, he would join actors like Dustin Hoffman and Jason Isaacs who have played the traditional Captain Hook in previous iterations. Garrett Hedlund also most recently played a younger Captain Hook in the Peter Pan prequel from Warner Bros.

When the Emperor of China issues a decree that one man per family must serve in the Imperial Army to defend the country from Northern invaders, Hua Mulan, the eldest daughter of an honored warrior, steps in to take the place of her ailing father. Masquerading as a man, Hua Jun, she is tested every step of the way and must harness her inner-strength and embrace her true potential. It is an epic journey that will transform her into an honored warrior and earn her the respect of a grateful nation…and a proud father.
