Jack The Giant Killer Gets Pushed Back To March 2013 – But Why?

Something’s amiss.

I’ve read a couple of drafts of the screenplay for Brian Singer’s Jack the Giant Killer, and while I don’t really know how concordant they will be to the finished film, I can say that I recognised pretty much everything in the first trailer – sorry, announcement clip. I also realised that there was a lot more going on than that video let on and that, actually, this film looked to have a lot of neat tricks up its sleeve.

So I’m particularly surprised to see Deadline’s report that Jack has hit the road and hiked all the way from its Summer release date, way back into 2013.

Now, Jack‘s studio, Warner Bros. have already made use of its June 15th release date by pushing Rock of Ages back a fortnight and into that slot, and at the same time, they’ve pulled potential 2013 release Arthur and Lancelot from their schedule altogether, suggesting that they’re less likely than ever to give it the green light. Does this suggest that the Jack move has less to do with Jack, per se, and more to do with the overall shape of their datebook? Very possibly. Rock of Ages has supposedly been testing very well, so maybe the studio is very focused on giving that the best platform, by any means.

But it also means that Jack’s going to pick up a strange little stigma, and that questions are going to be asked.

Some distance on the great Snow White wars of 2012 can only help Jack out here, I think.
