Ian McShane has signed on to star as the King opposite his princess daughter played by Eleanor Tomlinson, and Nicholas Hoult’s title character in JACK THE GIANT KILLER. The film, which also boasts a cast of Stanley Tucci, Bill Nighy, John Kassir, Ewan McGregor, and the in-talks Steve Coogan and Ewan Bremner, is pitched as an exciting action/adventure tale that gives a fresh spin on the classic story of Jack’s journey to the land of Giants to save the princess. Bryan Singer will direct the project for New Line.
McShane, who was most recently seen in the Brit indie “44 Inch Chest” will next be seen in the Summer blockbuster “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides”.
McShane is repped by ICM, Independent Talent Group, and Gallant Management.
