While no one has been officially cast as the young farmer Jack in Bryan Singer’s Jack the Giant Killer, a few actors have been name-checked as having meetings for the role, including Kick-Ass star Aaron Johnson and The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus/Social Network star Andrew Garfield.
The film, which was originally scheduled to begin shooting this Summer in England, has now been been pushed back to February 2011, in an effort to give Singer more time to better figure out the visual effects. According to HeatVision, Singer will use a process that will supposedly allow him to see the giants in-camera as the actors play opposite them.
I'm just impressed the movie is still moving forward. I'm rather fascinated a more obscure tale--relatively speaking--is getting big Hollywood treatment. And it sounds like interesting technology they are trying to incorporate. Although I admit, I rather hope it isn't 3D. It just gives me a headache.
