McQuarrie Takes On "Jack The Giant Killer"

Academy Award winning writer Christopher McQuarrie ("The Usual Suspects") will reunite with director Bryan Singer ("Superman Returns") on "Jack The Giant Killer" for New Line and Legendary Pictures.

The fantasy adventure, set to lense in the UK this summer, will reportedly take an 'adult' look at the "Jack and the Beanstalk" legend, revolving around a captured princess and a long-standing peace between men and giants that becomes threatened.

The original "Jack the Giant Killer" feature released in 1962 by United Artists, directed by Nathan H. Juran, produced by Edward Small, starred actor Kerwin Mathews in a fairy tale story about a man who defends a princess against a sorcerer's giants and demons, loosely based on the traditional "Jack the Giant Killer" tale.
