Director Bryan Singer on his ‘Giant Task’ Jack the Giant Slayer

Shawn Edwards travels to London to talk to famed director Bryan Singer (X-Men) and asked him if he loved 3D, how did he accomplish this Giant feat, and what else he has cooking…..

BRYAN SINGER (Director/Producer) has consistently entertained audiences with his bold visual style and richly drawn characters since his debut feature film, the 1993 Sundance Film Festival’s Grand Jury Prize winner “Public Access.”
Singer first gained widespread attention in 1995 with the mystery/thriller “The Usual Suspects,” starring Chazz Palminteri, Benicio Del Toro, Stephen Baldwin, Gabriel Byrne, Kevin Pollack and Kevin Spacey. The film won two Academy Awards®: Spacey for Best
Supporting Actor and Christopher McQuarrie for Best Original Screenplay. His next feature was the critically acclaimed “Apt Pupil,” which was adapted from a Stephen King novella and starred Sir Ian McKellen.
Singer followed with two wildly successful films—the summer 2000 blockbuster “X- Men” and its even more successful 2003 sequel “X2: X-Men United.” He helmed these adaptations with a keen awareness of the 40-year-old comic franchise’s legion of admirers. Comic fans and new audiences overwhelmingly embraced Singer’s vision, which seamlessly fused the science fiction and action/adventure genres with an all-star cast led by Hugh Jackman, Sir Patrick Stewart, Sir Ian McKellan, and Halle Berry.
He was next tapped to helm “Superman Returns.” The first blockbuster shot on the Panavision Genesis digital camera, it excited fans and critics alike while drawing audiences worldwide to traditional and Imax 3-D formats. It was also the first live action film to utilize the post-conversion 3D process with great success.
Singer returned to the X-Men universe as producer on the 2011 international hit “X- Men: First Class,” a prequel based on his original story. Currently, he is in production on the latest film in that epic franchise, “X-Men: Days of Future Past,” which he will direct and produce through his Bad Hat Harry Productions banner, and which reunites members of the starring cast from “X-Men: First Class” as well as from the previous films.
Most recently, Singer directed and produced the World War 2 drama “Valkyrie,” starring Tom Cruise, Kenneth Branagh, Tom Wilkinson, Eddie Izzard, and Bill Nighy. Well received critically, the film has grossed nearly $200 million worldwide, giving the rebooted United Artists its first bona fide commercial hit.
