Jack Black will star in 20th Century Fox and Electric Dynamite’s re-imagining of Jonathan Swift’s classic tale “Gulliver’s Travels” says the trades.
The film centers on free-spirited travel writer Lemuel Gulliver (Black) on assignment in the Bermuda triangle who suddenly finds himself a giant among men when he washes ashore on the hidden island of Lilliput, home to a population of industrious, yet tiny, people.
Rob Letterman (“Shark Tale”) will direct. Nicholas Stoller (“Fun With Dick and Jane”) is currently polishing a script by Joe Stillman (“Shrek”). Shooting begins in March, though locations aren’t yet locked.
