Movie2k Movies - Jack the Giant Killer Plot
Jack the Giant Killer tells the story of an ancient war that is reignited when a young farmhand unwittingly opens a gateway between our world and a fearsome race of giants. Unleashed on the Earth for the first time in centuries, the giants strive to reclaim the land they once lost, forcing the young man, Jack, into the battle of his life to stop them.
Fighting for a kingdom, its people, and the love of a brave princess, he comes face to face with the unstoppable warriors he thought only existed in legend–and gets the chance to become a legend himself.

Movie2k Movies - Jack the Giant Killer Production Notes
In October 2010, New Line gave Bryan Singer the green-light to begin pre-production work on Jack the Giant Killer with production scheduled to begin the following spring. In November 2010 Singer began screen testing for the male and female leads. Aaron Johnson, Nicholas Hoult and Aneurin Barnard were up for the young farmer role and Adelaide Kane, Lily Collins and Juno Temple were testing for the part of the princess.
In December 2010 Singer said that, “I’m very much looking forward to using the EPIC Red for my next movie Jack the Giant Killer which will be shot in, what else, 3D. The camera’s incredibly compact size and extraordinary resolution are ideal for the 3D format. But more importantly Jack the Giant Killer is my first movie set in a time before electricity. The EPIC’s extraordinary exposure latitude will allow me to more effectively explore the use of natural light”.
In February 2011, it was reported that Stanley Tucci had been cast as the villain, an adviser to the king with designs on usurping power. Also included in the report was news that Bill Nighy and John Kassir will play Fallon, the two-headed leader of the giants; Nighy gets to play the big head while Kassir will play the small head. Also in February, Nicholas Hoult was offered the lead role. Singer stated that he liked him since Skins and was very supportive of his casting in X-Men: First Class. Later in the same month, Ewan McGregor joined the cast as the leader of the king’s elite guard, who helps fight giants.
In March 2011, Eleanor Tomlinson was cast opposite Nicholas Hoult as the princess. Also in March, Ian McShane was cast to play the princess’ father, King Brahmwell. Two days later New Line and Warner Bros. announced a release date of June 15, 2012.
