Nicholas Hoult Is 'Jack The Giant Killer'

Nicholas Hoult suits up on the cover of Esquire Korea‘s February 2011 issue.

The 21-year-old British actor, who’s dating his X-Men: First Class co-star Jennifer Lawrence, has been offered the lead in Jack the Giant Killer.

The Bryan Singer-directed drama is a “scary revisionist take on the Jack and the Beanstalk mythology,” according to Deadline.

Nicholas would star as a farmer who leads an expedition into the giants’ kingdom to rescue a kidnapped princess.

Stanley Tucci has signed on to play the villain, while Bill Nighy and John Kassir have been cast as a two-headed giant, Variety reports.
