Production Starts ON JACK THE GIANT KILLER as Official Synopsis is Revealed

Over the weekend production started on Bryan Singer’s fantasy remake JACK THE GIANT KILLER which stars X-men First class star Nicholas Hoult in the titular role. Warner Bros/ New Line Cinema said along with the filming started in London they also revealed the movies actual offical synopsis:

Jack the Giant Killer tells the story of an ancient war that is reignited when a young farmhand unwittingly opens 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.

Both Hoult and Singer recently worked together on X-MEN FIRST CLASS where Singer was one of the movie’s producers, the movie will also star Eleanor Thomas, Stanley Tucci, Ian McShane, Bill Nighy,  Ewan McGregor, Warwick Davis  and Eddie Marsan.

The movie will be an alternative take on the classic Jack and The Beanstalk fable which followed a young farmhand who protected a princess from a evil wizard is the young farmhand opens a door re-igniting an ancient war between humans & Giants. Though we do love to see any remakes respect the original version in some but its also good to expand the story slightly like making the origin been an ancient war and no big surprise its going to be 3D!

JACK THE GIANT KILLER has been scheduled for a June 15, 2012 release, check out the offical press release below:
