Actors Line Up To Try Singer’s “Jack”

Casting tests will kick off in London in the next fortnight for Bryan Singer’s “Jack the Giant Killer” at New Line and Legendary Pictures reports Heat Vision.

Testing will take place for the leads with Aaron Johnson, Nicholas Hoult and Aneurin Barnard up for the titular young farmer Jack while Adelaide Kane, Lily Collins and Juno Temple are testing for the part of the kidnapped princess whom Jack must rescue to prevent a war between humans and giants.

Jamie Campbell Bower was also on the list for the male role but can’t test due to a broken ankle. The production start date will begin in March and actors are being asked to commit a rather substantive eight to nine months on the project.
