Ewan McGregor circling role in Jack the Giant Killer
Posted by: Kristy Sturdivant
Ewan McGregor is in negotiations to join the cast of the upcoming fairy tale adaptation JACK THE GIANT KILLER. The film will be directed by Bryan Singer and it basically follows the tale about a young farmer who leads the way in attacking some giants who kidnapped a princess. McGregor would play one of the king’s elite guards who helps fight the giants. If McGregor does join, he will star alongside fellow actors: Stanley Tucci, Nicholas Hoult, Bill Nighy and John Kassir. There are also two actresses up for the female lead, Adelaide Kane (POWER RANGERS RPM) and Eleanor Tomlinson (ALICE IN WONDERLAND). We’ll let you know who ends up landing the lead there. Shooting is schedule to start next month.
I’m on the fence about this film although adding Ewan McGregor will definitely put it in the “more likely to see” category instead of the “walk the other way” category.
