Director Bryan Singer (Superman Returns) will direct Jack the Giant Killer, according to The Hollywood Reporter‘s Heat Vision blog. The script, by Live Free or Die Hard‘s Mark Bomback, is a fairy-tale fantasy about a young farmer tasked with rescuing a princess from an imposing giant. Though the director is also attached to Battlestar Galactica and an Excalibur remake, the blog believes Giant Killer will be his next film.
