‘Deadwood’ Star Ian McShane Joins Bryan Singer’s ‘Jack The Giant Killer’
  |  @   |  

It’s being reported that Deadwood star Ian McShane has joined the cast of X-Men and The Usual Suspects director Bryan Singer‘s upcoming movie, Jack the Giant Killer, which is a brand new take on the tale of Jack and the Beanstalk.

McShane will play King Brahmwell, ruler of the lands and father to the princess (Eleanor Tomlinson) who is taken by a giant. The princess’s capture sees a lowly farm boy (Nicholas Hoult) set off with a team to rescue her, despite the king’s dislike of his daughter being so close to someone not of equal standing. The mission also risks breaking a fragile peace agreement between the humans and giants.

McShane joins the cast that also includes Ewan McGregor, who’s playing the top soldier in the king’s army, Bill Nighy and John Kassir who play the two-headed leader of the giants, Fallon, and Stanley Tucci, who’s playing an adviser to the king with plans to take over rulership.

In addition to Deadwood, McShane is also known for his performances in titles like Kung Fu Panda, The Pillars of the Earth, and Kings. He can next be seen in Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides as the feared Blackbeard.
