Ewan McGregor is in negotiations for a part in Bryan Singer's Jack the Giant Killer, New Line Cinema has confirmed to ComingSoon.net.

The project, a fantasy drama that re-teams Singer with The Usual Suspects and Valkyrie screenwriter Christopher McQuarrie, is said to take an adult look at the "Jack and the Beanstalk" legend. 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.

The cast already includes Nicholas Hoult in the title role with Bill Nighy, Stanley Tucci and John Kassir co-starring. As production is expected to begin sometime next month, the full cast should be announced shortly.
