Bryan Singer's "Jack The Giant Killer" continues an occurrence that is standard procedure for all Bryan Singer's movies. They fork in the road in two different directions:
1. His movies either don't get made at all ("Excalibur", "Logan's Run", "Battlestar Galactica", "Six Billion Dollar Man")
2. Or his movies take much much longer than usual and normal to make ("Jack The Giant Killer".)
Can it be only a matter of time before New Line Cinema completely writes off "Jack The Giant Killer" because Bryan Singer can't complete it for whatever reason ala' "Excalibur?"
We're now looking at summer 2013 (at the earliest) that "Jack The Giant Killer" may be released.
Bryan Singer's last major genre flick (the failed "Superman Returns") was released in 2006. In the mean time....there has been no "Logan's Run", "Battlestar Galactica", "Excalibur", or "Six Billion Dollar Man" from this director.
If "Jack The Giant Killer" is successfully completed and released next year by Bryan Singer, it will be 7 years (almost a decade) after Bryan Singer released his last major genre flick ("Superman Returns.")
Contrast that with film director Michael Bay, who directed and successfully released a trilogy of "Transformer" movies (all movies released within 4 years ) beginning in 2007.
