Nicolas Stoller, writer for Jack Black's modern-day tweak on Gulliver's Travels, revealed that the film will be taking place in New York City. Suddenly I'm much more interested in seeing Jack Black get accosted by tiny Lilliputians and Yahoos. [Latino Review]
@ ShadowBottle: "Oh great. What a way to ruin a story with a real message still applicable today. It goes from strong political and ethical commentary to a fart joke about tiny people. Awesome."
Um... Have you read Swift? He was not particularly averse to fart jokes himself. I think he and Jables would get along fine.
