When we first got news that there was a new Gullivers Travels movie coming out, I was like, uhh what? Then we heard that Jason Segal and Jack Black were casted in it, so maybe it will be worth it. Now Amanda Peet has joined the crew, and if she gets anywhere near naked in it, now that will totally be worth it!
With Black as their lead and Segel as, whatever he is, they’ve started filling out the rest of the cast. Emily Blunt is already on board and now HR says they’ve added Amanda Peet. It seems this version of Gulliver will skip the part where he’s a tiny man in a big man’s world, and instead focus on the much cooler part where he’s a sailor stranded on an island of super-tiny people. In this modernized retelling Gulliver is a writer lost in the Bermuda Triangle, and Peet will be his editor/love interest.
Black and Peet have a cinematic history together. In Saving Silverman he tied her up and kept her in his basemen until she fell in love with Steve Zahn. Presumably, things will turn out better for them this time. It may even be funny! ZING!
