Probability of Stephen Fry playing a giant raised by 0.01%

This isn’t really a news story but an observation over coffee. It was announced last night that director Bryan Singer’s Jack the Giant Killer has been given the go-ahead.Â

In a definitively , completely, totally, utterly unrelated event, Stephen Fry boasted on Twitter that he would be having lunch with Singer on that very same day.

Circumstantial evidence, but if the Giant in a Jack and the Beanstalk inspired film were, for a change, made to have an actual personality that audiences might warm to, I can’t think of anyone better than Stephen Fry and his sheepishly hunched back. After recording voice work for Alice in Wonderland’s Cheshire Cat and the Fable III video games, Hollywood likely filed the satirist-and-sometimes-actor in their fantasy folder for things to come.
