British actress Eleanor Tomlinson (“The Illusionist,” “Angus Thong and Perfect Snogging”) is set to play the female lead in Bryan Singer’s “Jack the Giant Killer” for New Line and Legendary Pictures reports the trades.
19-year old Tomlinson will play Isabella, a princess who runs away from her kingdom and is kidnapped by giants. Before being taken, she meets a farmer’s son named Jack (Nicholas Hoult) who later leads a mission into the land of the giants to save her.
Stanley Tucci, Ewan McGregor, Bill Nighy and John Kassir also star. Shooting on the project kicks off shortly in London.
