Bryan Singer eyeballing young men to star in Jack the Giant Killer

12.01.2010

See that buff, young man in his underwear to the right? Bryan Singer wants to do something with him. JACK THE GIANT KILLER is gearing up and Singer is meeting with a collection of Hollywood's hottest young men about the possibility of starring in his film. Pictured is Aaron Johnson who has been rumored to be at the top of Singer's to-do list since earlier this summer.

Also in contention are Nicholas Hoult, who Singer got to know during X-MEN: FIRST CLASS where Hoult is starring as Beast, and Aneurin Barnard. The trio are up for the role of the strapping, young farmer who, after a hot and sweaty day in the fields must confront a much bigger man and take him down (and something about a princess...).

Speaking of the princess, Adelaide Kane, Lily Collins and Juno Temple are up for the role but who cares about that. Let's get back to Singer's young men. Johnson looks to be the lead candidate, and has been for some time, but Singer is looking to put a hold on the lead actor for a good seven or eight months, an usually long commitment for a film.

Filming on JACK THE GIANT KILLER was expected to begin this summer (which theoretically precluded Singer from directing FIRST CLASS himself) but the lengthy pre-production process pushed it back to early 2011.

Ya know im all for free speech and probably the least PC person but even i was somewhat offended by the headline of this article. Yes i did know Singer was a gay man. Someone tell me why a major site like joblo.com would allow such an article to be published. Also I would niot so much call it gay bashing just a poor & immature attempt at humor.

omgomg we're all PC dorks!

First of all, I don't believe this story is "gay bashing". I just don't know why the writer (who I generally find funny and good at his job) had to spend the entire article making one lame joke after another and barely commented on the news itself. Throwing in a comment somewhere in the piece poking fun at Singer for "fucking a guy in a hot tub" or whatever it is you might be talking about is one thing, but saying one contrived, unfunny joke after another is stupid and annoying, especially when

Oh, shut up you PC dorks

Gawker posted a story 2 years ago about how Bryan Singer made a role in xmen for some dude he fucked in a hot tub, the guy never acted again after that role, he has a reputation for banging actors and if we were talking about a straight director banging chicks that wanted to be in his movies, we'd make the same kind of jokes

If Joblo can spread its political views on the little cartoon in the corner, we can make this joke without morons coming on here and claiming homophobia when there is

Well Kerwin Matthews, who played Jack in the original film was gay.... coincidence? That being said, there better be some 2 headed giant vs. sea monster action in this movie!

Bryan Singer is gay. So what?

Okay, this article was creepy and homophobic. Especially coming from you, Mike. Honestly, what is up with that?

Chill out ppl

i laughed at the double entendre in the 2nd paragraph. He wasn't gay gashing, or being homophobic, just a joke. Don't pull out your pitchforks on him just yet. However,really do wish you went more into detail with the plot though, you did go overkill with the jokes.

I don't like Aaron Johnson. There is something about his presence and mannerisms that annoy me. It's petty and not really a valid reason in a professional sense, but I don't like watching this guy. I got the feeling like 2 minutes into Kick-Ass. It's why I didn't see Nowhere Boy and it's why I have no interest in seeing Kick-Ass again.

I like the Aaron Johnson/Bryan Singer pairing. Premise sounds interesting, Singer is one of the better big budget filmmakers in Hollywood.

Also, really lame with the gay jokes. Honestly, not even close to funny and just immature and sad kinda.

Subtle...

...but not really. Honestly the "gay" double entendres are about as funny and offensive as joking about this one black guy who loves him some watermelon and slavery. I expect better from my JoBlo.

probably has more to do with Singer's reputation than all gay people.
