According to HeatVision Christopher McQuarrie, writer of The Usual Suspects and Valkyrie, will once again be working with Bryan Singer on Jack the Giant Killer. McQuarrie is currently working on the latest draft of the script, with New Line aiming to start shooting in July.
Singer is about to begin casting for 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.
Christopher McQuarrie recently handed in his script for Wolverine 2, which according to Hugh Jackman is the best of the series yet. McQuarrie is an Oscar winner so that could very well be the case, and Wolverine 2 will need a solid script if it is going to improve on the last outing.
Jack the Giant Killer has a release date set for late 2011, although depending on how post-production goes it may be released in 2012.
