... Giants ... will be to Jack and the Beanstalk as Tangled was to Rapunzel and Frozen is to The Snow Queen.
The film hasn’t been officially announced, and it could disappear from the schedule even after it is. But for now, work on the film continues, and I understand that director Nathan Greno has had a couple of table reads and is getting the basic shape of the film into good order. ...
So you know, I really try to keep my mouth shut about upcoming projects that aren't out on the internets. There's a reason for this: I'm a labor rep, and I get tired of being yelled at by this or that studio person because I've ruined some flack's official roll-out announcement.
I sincerely, earnestly try to avoid "breaking" anything because I walk around in all these studios and see stuff. I'm not an operator or a fan site and I really don't care what's in the development hopper one way or the other, since pictures fall in and out of work all the time. (Rapunzel/Tangled morphed into different movies for multiple years.)
I've heard this and that about Jack and the Beanstalk. I'm glad to know it's on a faster track now.
