Bryan Singer has spoken out in favour of the numerous fairytale movies currently in various stages of production.
He’s keen to point out, though, that his own currently-shooting fairytale update – Jack The Giant Killer – has been in the making for quite some time, and isn’t just a trend hitchhiker.
“I was involved with this over two-and-a-half years ago or even longer,” the director says. “I was flirting with it almost three years ago.”
He’s all for the current trend, though, adding:
“That's cool, it's a renaissance of those kind of movies and it's cool. I'm happy to be a part of two renaissances, the comic book renaissance and now this one.
“But it wasn't intentional. In fact, I probably would have been shy about jumping into a fairytale movie with all of the projects out there now. I might have actually backed away from it.”
Jack The Giant Killer , which stars Nicholas Hoult as the titular champion, opens 15 June 2012.
