Aaron Johnson, Nicholas Hoult & Juno Temple Up For Jack The Giant Killer

HeatVision reports that Bryan Singer is close to casting the leads in Jack The Giant Killer. The three contenders for Jack include Aaron Johnson (Nowhere Boy, Kick-Ass), Nicholas Hoult (About A Boy, Single Man) and newcomer Aneurin Bernard. While Johnson seems the frontrunner Hoult could very well be a decent second choice. It doesn't hurt that he's co-starring in X-Men First Class which Singer is producing. In the running for the Princess is Juno Temple (Atonement, Year One), Lily Collins and Adelaide Kane. Temple is my favorite of the group and is more likely to get the role with her high profile.

The script recently worked on by Christopher McQuarrie (The Wolverine, Usual Suspects) focuses on a princess who is kidnapped, threatening the long-standing peace between humans and giants.  A young farmer is then forced to lead a rescue mission to the giants' kingdom.
