Jack Black is a big guy, sure, but is he big enough to play Lemuel Gulliver? Hard to see, but 20th Century Fox sure seems to think so!

Jack Black Going Big for Gulliver's Travels

Fox has picked up Jack Black to play the title character in their bigscreen adaptation of Gulliver's Travels.

Considered a contemporary reimagining of the classic Jonathan Swift tale, Gulliver's Travels centers on Lemuel Gulliver, a free-spirited travel writer who, on an assignment to the Bermuda Triangle, suddenly finds himself a giant among men when he washes ashore on the hidden island of Lilliput, home to a population of industrious, yet tiny, people.

Rob Letterman will direct off a script by Nicholas Stoller and Joe Stillman.

While an adaptation of Gulliver's Travels is news to us, 20th Century Fox has had Letterman onboard for some time. Now that they have found their star, they are coming out of the closet with the project.

The film is set to enter production this March.
