‘Breaking Bad’ Creator Working with Disney on ‘Jack and the Beanstalk’ Adaptation


What do you get when you combine the mind behind Breaking Bad and Disney? It looks like we’ll soon find out.

Deadline broke the news that “a revisionist take on the Jack and the Beanstalk tale that is based on a detailed outline by Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul creator Vince Gilligan.”

The producer is working on getting Emmy Award winning Breaking Bad and Better Call Saul writer Thomas Schnauz onboard to pen the script.

Bryan Singer directed an adaptation of the tale in 2013 that starred Nicholas Hoult, Eleanor Tomlinson, Stanley Tucci, Ian McShane, Bill Nighy and Ewan McGregor. Jack the Giant Slayer fared simply ok in box offices, having a budget of $185–200 million and bringing in $197.6 million globally. Not to mention the movie was given mixed critical reviews.

Vince’s current project, Better Call Saul, has been met with nothing but a positive reception since it’s premiere this year. In fact, the series premiere became the biggest in cable history. Not a bad follow-up to the also critically acclaimed Breaking Bad.

We think Vince is more than qualified to pull off successful adaptation of the classic tale, but we’d love to hear what you think in the comments below!
