The past few years have seen Ian McShane stepping into the fantasy realm of filmmaking, with roles in Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, Snow White and the Huntsman and Jack the Giant Slayer.
This month sees him swap swords and dwarfing for salsa in Cuban Fury, and on behalf of HeyUGuys I got a chance to chat with McShane ahead of the film’s UK release. Here he speaks about what drew him to the role, how he got into acting, and his experience working on Brett Ratner’s upcoming blockbuster Hercules.
Formerly titled Jack the Giant Killer (but presumably changed as so not to offend the Giant League of America, or some other similar pressure group), the new trailer for Bryan Singer’s fantasy flick Jack the Giant Slayer (2013) has emerged this week with a new name and a new release date. Initially scheduled to hit cinemas this summer, the film’s year-long delay means that this is the first footage we’ve laid eyes on for a good while. In a year where Avengers Assemble, The Dark Knight Rises and Bond #23 Skyfall have dominated global cinema box offices, the studio’s decision may well prove to pay dividends for all involved – assuming that the finished article is up-to-scratch (so rarely the case with projects confined to production hell).
