According to Deadline 19 year old English actress Eleanor Tomlinson has landed the role of Princess Isabella in Bryan Singer’s Jack the Giant Killer.
Tomlinson has been acting in films since she was 12, and had small roles in The Illusionist, Angus Thong and Perfect Snogging and more recently, Alice in Wonderland.
In the movie the princess is kidnapped, threatening a long-standing peace between men and giants. A young farmer, to be played by Nicholas Hoult, is given an opportunity to lead a dangerous expedition to the giants’ kingdom in hope of rescuing her.
Stanley Tucci (The Lovely Bones) is playing the villain who is “an advisor to the king with designs on usurping power” while Bill Nighy will play a two-headed giant called Fallon. Nighy will play the big head while voice actor John Kassir will play the small one. Ewan McGregor will play the leader of the king’s elite guard who helps the fight against the giants.
Christopher McQuarrie (The Usual Suspects, Valkyrie, The Wolverine) has written the script, and Singer will begin shooting in July in London and Iceland.
