Hugh Jackman prepares for Blackbeard role in 'Pan' by shaving head

By Kyle Johnson,

Hugh Jackman took to social media on Tuesday to show off his newly shaved head as he prepares for his role as Blackbeard in the upcoming Pan.

He took to Instagram early in the day to show off his bald head, combined with his beard and mustache. He added simply, "Blackbeard is born #Pan."

Jackman is shown from the neck up sitting in a chair, with hair cutting supplies behind him and a blurry hand also caught in the photograph as he likely was getting makeup applied.

In January, the Australian actor signed on to Warner Bros. Peter Pan origin film, Pan. He is set to play the primary antagonist in the film.

The live-action film, to be directed by Atonement's Joe Wright, is said to be a darker take on the story in the earlier days of Neverland before Captain Hook takes over. Garrett Hedlund previously signed on to star as the infamous pirate.

Also on board for the project is Girl With The Dragon Tattoo star Rooney Mara. She is set to play Tiger Lily, while newcomer Levi Miller is set to play Peter Pan.

Pan is currently slated for a July 17, 2015 theatrical release.
