Posted by LiveFor on September 23, 2009

bryansingerBryan Singer (Superman Returns, X-Men, The Usual Suspects, Valkyrie) has signed on to direct Jack the Giant Killer, the fantasy adventure from New Line and Legendary Pictures.

Neal Moritz is producing via his Original Film banner along with David Dobkin.

The story, by Mark Bomback (“Live Free or Die Hard”), 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 hopes of rescuing her. Darren Lemke is the original writer.

Michele Weiss and Michael Disco are overseeing for the studio while Ori Marmur is overseeing for Original. Jon Jashni and Alex Garcia shepherd for Legendary, which is co-producing and co-financing.

This is the third project the filmmaker has attached himself to in the last two months. The other two are a feature version of “Battlestar Galactica,” set up at Universal, and a remake of “Excalibur,” set up at Warners with Legendary also involved.

“Killer” is most likely to be Singer’s next movie. The project has no start date but is being fast-tracked.
