Bryan Singer’s Jack the Giant Slayer (co-written by The Usual Suspect’s author Christopher McQuarrie) looks like it’s found a star in Ewan McGregor playing Elmont. Nicholas Hoult has the title role as Jack and wee see Ian McShane as King Brahmwell, Bill Nighy as General Fallon and Eleanor Tomlinson as Princess Isabelle.
Here’s the official blurb;
Jack the Giant Slayer 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 (Nicholas Hoult) 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.
