Bryan Singer’s fantasy adventure “Jack the Giant Killer” has officially begun production in London. In the just issued press release from New Line and Legendary Pictures, some new plot details have emerged. Here’s the included synopsis:

“Jack the Giant Killer tells the story of an ancient war that is reignited when a young farmhand unwittingly opens a gateway between our world and a fearsome race of giants.

Unleashed on the Earth for the first time in centuries, the giants strive to reclaim the land they once lost, forcing the young man, Jack, into the battle of his life to stop them.

Fighting for a kingdom, its people, and the love of a brave princess, he comes face to face with the unstoppable warriors he thought only existed in legend and gets the chance to become a legend himself.”

Nicholas Hoult, Eleanor Tomlinson, Stanley Tucci, Ian McShane, Bill Nighy and Ewan McGregor star in the film which Singer will direct from a screenplay by Darren Lemke, Christopher McQuarrie and Dan Studney.
