Jack Black will take the lead in 'Gullivers Travels'

by Joey Paur

20th Century Fox is going to make yet another adaptation of 'Gulliver's Travels' with Jack Black taking on the title role. The director of the animated movie 'Shark Tale' Rob Letterman has signed on to direct this this movie. They are calling it a...

...contemporary reimagining of the classic Jonathan Swift tale.

Variety Reports:

Story centers on Lemuel Gulliver, a free-spirited travel writer who, on an assignment to the Bermuda Triangle, suddenly finds himself a giant among men when he washes ashore on the hidden island of Lilliput, home to a population of industrious, yet tiny, people.

"Forgetting Sarah Marshall" helmer Nicholas Stoller and Joe Stillman ("Shrek") penned the screenplay.

So the island is in the Bermuda Triangle? The 1726 novel Gulliver's Travels has ben made into several movies, both for the bigscreen and smallscreen. To be honest, this new contemporary reimagining does not interest me at all. But, people will see it because Jack Black is in it.
