Jack Black  is  set  to step  into a classic  novel  for his
next  project.   According   to   Variety,   Jack Black  has
signed on to play the lead for Gulliver's Travels.


The film will be a modernized take  on  Jonathan Swift's
classic  1726  novel  and  will  feature  Black as Lemuel
Gulliver,  a  travel writer  on assignment at the Bermuda
Triangle  who  discovers the secret island of Lilliput and
its tiny inhabitants.


The  film  was  written   by  Forgetting   Sarah  Marshall
director    Nicholas Stoller   and   Shrek  co - writer  Joe
Stillman, for Rob Letterman (Shark Tale) to direct.
In Actuality this is the  the Four Points by Sheraton Ventura Harbor - Not LF Wade International Airport Bermuda (no worry of Hurricanes here!)
Behind the scenes
"HEAVY HITTERS"
Director, Rob Letterman

Assistant Director (below)
- He was the "shot caller"
I received  a  phone  call several  months  ago
enquiring about   guest rooms  that   might  be
needed   for   a   little   picture    produced   by
Twentieth  Century  Fox,    "Gulliver's  Travels"
staring   Jack Black.   I  was   told   they   were
presently   in   England  where   almost  all  the  
film was to be shot, but were  going   to   finish  
in  Ventura Harbor,  as they  would   substitute  
our area for Bermuda.

What began  as  a small room  block  blew  up
into     over    500     room    nights      and    the
single  largest  group  booking  of  my  career!  
As  a  bonus,    the   hotel    was   unexpectedly
made   over    to   resemble    the     airport   in  
Bermuda.  It was a great  "Hollywood moment"  
-   one   of  those  gems  where you get caught
thinking,   "I  get  paid  to  do this? !".

Everyone  involved  with   the  production  was
most    gracious    and    Jack   was especially
accommodating    when    it   came  to  picture
taking with staff.  Planned release  is Summer
or Christmas 2010
Ready on the set
(notice Jack's "double" in the foreground)
Meanwhile - over at the harbor .......
That's a wrap!
