Caruso Plucks Beanstalk’s “Jack”

D.J. Caruso (“Eagle Eye,” “Disturbia”) is set to direct “Jack the Giant Killer”, a more adult dramatic take on the classic ‘Jack and the Beanstalk’ fable, for New Line Cinema reports Variety.

When a princess is kidnapped, a long-standing peace between men and giants becomes threatened, and a young farmer is given an opportunity to lead a dangerous expedition to the giant kingdom to rescue her.

Mark Bomback (“Race to Witch Mountain”) penned the script, and Neal Moritz is producing.
