Singer Talks “Jack the Giant Killer”

“X-Men: First Class” producer Bryan Singer has already been working hard on his next film “Jack the Giant Killer” for Warner Bros. Pictures and he tells 24 Frames that he took on the project as an antidote to his last effort “Valkyrie”.

“With that movie, I was so obsessed with the accuracy and the history and the detail, and this film is a fantastical time in England. it’s not pegged to a particular time in history, and it deals with fun and broad characters” says Singer.

He adds that there’s also a welcome simplicity to this story about a farmhand rescuing a princess from a race of giants – “it’s the first time in one of my films that there’s a romance that’s not fraught with a love triangle. The simpleness of this romance is my cure for all the love triangles that permeated the ‘X-Men’.”
