Now here’s something interesting. I’ve been hearing about Bryan Singer doing a “Jack and the Beanstalk” movie for a while, but this is the first time I’ve heard what it is actually going to be about.
It seems Christopher McQuarrie, who was onboard with Singer for the Usual Suspects, will be writing the screenplay. As stated in the article:
McQuarrie is penning the current draft of the fantasy adventure, the tale of which is set in motion when a princess is kidnapped, threatening a long-standing peace between men and giants. A young farmer is given an opportunity to lead a dangerous expedition to the giants’ kingdom in hope of rescuing her.
Now that sounds like it could be a cool fantasy adventure movie. Singer might pull it off. I’ve been on board with him for everything except Valkyrie. Here’s hoping this is an indication that something cool is coming down the pipe.
