Bryan Singer has found his next project. While he’s attached to remakes of Battlestar Galactica (UGH) and Excalibur (MEH), he’ll be moving forward on Jack the Giant Killer for New Line and Legendary. Yes, the movie is actually based on the fairy tale, with The Hollywood Reporter delivering this synopsis:
The story, by Mark Bomback (“Live Free or Die Hard”), is set in motion
when a princess is kidnapped, threatening a long-standing peace between
men and giants. A young farmer is given an opportunity to lead a
dangerous expedition to the giants’ kingdom in hopes of rescuing her.
The film is fast-tracked; while there’s no firm start date I’d imagine it kicks off sometime next year.
