Here’s a fun film from director Bryan Singer. The classic Jack and the Beanstalk now has the Hollywood treatment and judging from the trailer here it looks like it has the feel of Lord of the Rings!
This film gets it’s release in June next year.
“Jack the Giant Killer” tells the story of an ancient war that is reignited when a young farmhand unwittinglyopens a gateway between our world and a fearsome race of giants.
Unleashed on the Earth for the first time in centuries, the giants strive to reclaim the land they once lost, forcing the young man, Jack, into the battle of his life to stop them.
Fighting for a kingdom, its people, and the love of a brave princess, he comes face to face with the unstoppable warriors he thought only existed in legend—and gets the chance to become a legend himself.
Directed by Bryan Singer with a screenplay by Darren Lemke and Christopher McQuarrie and Dan Studney. The film stars Nicholas Hoult, Stanley Tucci, Ian McShane, Bill Nighy, Eleanor Tomlinson and Ewan McGregor.
The film will be released in 3D and 2D and IMAX cinemas.
