Katey Sagal, Wallace Shawn, Gilbert Gottfried and Chevy Chase are starring with Christopher Lloyd in the live-action fairy tale feature “Jack and the Beanstalk” says The Hollywood Reporter.
James Earl Jones is in negotiations to voice the role of the Giant in Gary J. Tunnicliffe’s comic, family-friendly take on the tale from Avalon Family Films and scribes Flip Kobler and Cindy Marcus.
Sagal will play the concerned mother of Jack (Colin Ford), Shawn will play the pawnbroker who sells Jack his magic beans and Gottfried will play a goose that lays golden eggs.
Chase has a cameo as the keeper of a labyrinth Jack must traverse to meet the giant. Daniel Roebuck will play the mayor of Jack’s hometown.
“Beanstalk” is the first of 10 low-budget family features DePew’s Avalon production company will produce. The film recently began production in Los Angeles.
