There have been so many fairy tales coming to life in both television and movies that it comes as no surprise that we’ll be adding another to the list in 2012. Bryan Singer (X-Men) is directing ‘Jack and the Giant Killer,’ the modern telling of a the story of Jack and the Beanstalk and the accompanying terrifying giants he encounters. The storyline reads, “A long-standing peace between men and giants is threatened, as a young farmer leads an expedition into the giants’ kingdom in hopes of rescuing a kidnapped princess”
When I first saw the title, I thought to myself, “Oh yeah! I forgot about Jack and the Beanstalk!” I loved this story as a kid and feel that this is actually the perfect story to have turn into a movie. The film stars the handsome Nicholas Hoult as Jack, along with co-stars Stanley Tucci and Ewan McGreggor.
Get your first look at the trailer below. This movie could be epic! The film hits theatres in June 2012.
