DJ Caruso has signed on to helm the film Jack the Giant Killer for New Line Cinema, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Neal Moritz is producing via his Original Film banner along with David Dobkin.
Mark Bomback (Live Free or Die Hard) wrote the script, which begins when a princess is kidnapped, which threatens a long-standing peace between men and giants. A young farmer is given an opportunity to lead a dangerous expedition to the giants’ kingdom in hopes of rescuing her.
The film is due in theaters some time in 2011.
