Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, Ian McShane has got his sights set on another adventure. McShane is the latest addition to the cast of the Bryan Singer, darkly envisioned version of Jack and The Beanstalk, more appropriately titled Jack The Giant Killer. The actor joins the long list of actors already claimed by the Giant, including Nicholas Hoult as Jack, Stanley Tucci as a villain, Eleanor Tomlinson as the princess, and Bill Nighy, Ewan McGregor and John Kassir as well.
The Englishman will take on the role of the fair princess’ father, King Brahmwell, who of course disapproves of her interest in a mere farm boy, Jack. Talk about a terrifying father-in-law. I doubt anyone would think twice about crossing an angry Ian McShane. I guess this will only add to the ways Jack has to buck up his bravery in this Singer adaptation.
