This new EPIC RED camera has become the hot new filmmaking item in Hollywood these days. Peter Jackson is shooting The Hobbit in 3D with it, Marc Webb is shooting the new Spider-Man movie with the Epic, and now Bryan Singer has announced that he'll direct Jack the Giant Killer with the camera as well.
Here's what Singer recently said on the RedUser Forums:
I'm very much looking forward to using the EPIC Red for my next movie Jack the Giant Killer which will be shot in, what else, 3D. The camera's incredibly compact size and extraordinary resolution are ideal for the 3D format. But more importantly Jack the Giant Killer is my first movie set in a time before electricity. The EPIC's extraordinary exposure latitude will allow me to more effectively explore the use of natural light.
The 3D fantasy/adventure project has been described as an adult look at the Jack and the Beanstalk legend. I'm looking forward to seeing what Singer is planning for this flick. It will also be great to actually start seeing some footage shot with this EPIC RED camera to see how it turns out.
Here's the plot summary for the film, “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.”
