"Gulliver's Travels": Something Big Is Going Down

20th Century Fox' "Gulliver's Travels" is director Rob Letterman's upcoming, 3D live-action family adventure, based on the 18th-century novel of the same name by author Jonathan Swift.

Set in the modern era, the feature stars Jack Black as title character 'Lemuel Gulliver' with Catherine Tate as the 'Queen of Lilliput', Emily Blunt as the 'Princess of Lilliput', Jason Segel as 'Horatio', Amanda Peet as 'Darcy', T.J. Miller as 'Dan', Billy Connolly as the 'King of Lilliput', Chris O'Dowd as 'Edward' and Romany Malco as 'Young Hank'.

Premise follows Gulliver, a free-spirited travel writer who, on an assignment to the Bermuda Triangle, suddenly finds himself a giant among men when he washes ashore on the hidden island of Lilliput, home to a population of industrious, yet tiny, people.

The Davis Entertainment production will be released December 22, 2010.

In 1939, the story was produced as a cel-animated Technicolor feature, directed by Dave Fleischer and produced by Max Fleischer, released by Paramount.
