Another fairy tale update planned - this time for Jack and the Beanstalk...
“When a princess is kidnapped, a long-standing peace between men and giants becomes threatened, and a young farmer is given an opportunity to lead a dangerous expedition to the giant kingdom to rescue her.”
Ewan McGregor is in negotiations to play the leader of the king's elite guard. The cast includes Stanley Tucci as the villain, Bill Nighy and John Kassir as the two-headed leader of the giants and Nicholas Hoult as Jack.
Update: Ian McShane has joined the cast and will take on role of King Brahmwell
Update: Eleanor Tomlinson has been cast as the princess. She has been previously seen in Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland, shown on the left.
