Nicholas Hoult will be Jack the Giant Killer
Posted by: Kristy Sturdivant
Nicholas Hoult who has starred in ABOUT A BOY and will also be in the upcoming X-MEN: FIRST CLASS as Hank McCoy/Beast, has been offered the lead in the upcoming fairy tale adaptation JACK THE GIANT KILLER. Wednesday it was announced that Stanley Tucci and Bill Nighly were cast, Tucci as the evil adviser to the king and Nighy as a giant with two heads (the other head will be played by John Kassir). JACK AND THE GIANT KILLER will be directed by Bryan Singer and loosely follows the tale of Jack and the Beanstalk, where the young farmer Jack leads an expedition to take down the giants who have kidnapped the princess. No production date has been set.
Nicholas Hoult is a great pick for this film, do you know he’s 6′ 3″-he’s come a long way since his role in ABOUT A BOY. I can’t wait to see what he does with Hank McCoy this summer.
