Congratulations to Eleanor Tomlinson. I’m not sure who she is, apart from the fact that she had small parts in Alice In Wonderland and The Illusionist. Now she’ll become a name you hear in households, as she’s been chosen to star in director Bryan Singer‘s big-budget Jack The Giant Killer, based on the fairy tale “Jack and the Beanstalk.” Way to climb the Hollywood fame beanstalk, Eleanor.
Tomlinson beat out a number of hopefuls, including Lily Collins (The Blind Side), Adelaide Kane (Power Rangers RPM – more like FTW) and Juno Temple (Greenberg). Having sent those other ladies home with not so much as a sack of beans, Tomlinson gets to star alongside Stanley Tucci, Ewan McGregor and Nicolas Hoult (X-Men: First Class). She’ll play Isabella the Princess, so curtsy next time you see her.
This giant of a movie is looking to drop down into theaters sometime in 2012. (The Playlist)
