Ewan McGregor is seen on the set of Jack the Giant Killer last week in England (April 13). Also spotted on set was Ewan's co-star in the film Eddie Marsan.
Directed by Bryan Singer, the film is a modern day fairytale in which "the long-standing peace between men and giants is threatened, as a young farmer leads an expedition into the giants' kingdom in hopes of rescuing a kidnapped princess."
Singer told Total Film that he hopes to bring something new to the fairy tale genre with his new film:
"It's a very traditional fairytale, probably the most traditional thing I've ever done. But it'll also be a fun twist on the notion of how these tales are told.
"Fairytales are often borne of socio-political commentary and translated into stories for children. But what if they were based on something that really happened? What if we look back at the story that inspired the story that you read to your kids? That’s kind of what this movie's about."
