New Line doing Jack reboot


“Disturbia” director D.J Caruso will direct a new adult-skewed version of fairytale classic “Jack and the Beanstalk”, according to Variety.

Caruso, who also helmed the rather lacklustre “Eagle Eye”, has agreed to captain New Line’s “Jack the Giant Killer”, which the trade says Neil Moritz (“xXx”, “Fast and the Furious” – hey! Maybe Vin Diesel can play the Giant!?) is one of the producers on.

When a princess is kidnapped, a long-standing peace between men and giants becomes threatened, and a young farmer is given an opportunity to lead a dangerous expedition to the giant kingdom to rescue her.
