(Guhhhh-liver’s Travels)

FINALLY, Swiftian, 18th century political critique is coming to the big screen… IN 3D!  Haha, I love you, 20th Century Fox.  Gulliver’s Travels opens in December, with direction from Rob Letterman (Monsters vs. Aliens) and a screenplay by Nicholas Stoller (Forgetting Sarah Marshall, Yes Men, Get Him to the Greek) and Joseph Stillman (Shrek, Shrek 2, Planet 51).

Jack Black takes on the title role of 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 Liliput, home to a population of industrious, yet tiny, people. [ComingSoon]

So basically, Fred Claus meets Alvin and the Chipmunks with Jack Black.  (*RECORD SCRATCH*) (*dog covers eyes with paws*)

Tagline: Black is the new big.  And I guarantee no less than 10 people had to sign off on that, probably 20. See, now THAT’S a Jonathan Swift story.
