Amanda Peet Joins Gulliver's Travels
Alongside Jack Black and Jason Segel

28 April 2009  |  Written by Chris Hewitt

Amanda Peet has joined the cast of the Jack Black-led adventure comedy, Gulliver’s Travels.

Based (very) loosely on Jonathan Swift’s classic tale, the updated Gulliver’s sees Black play ace travel writer, Lemuel Gulliver, who goes on assignment to the Bermuda Triangle and ends up on the island of Lilliput, populated by people so tiny they could come as free gifts in boxes of cereal.

Peet, a fine light comedienne, will play Black’s editor, and potential love interest. She joins the already-cast Jason Segel and Emily Blunt, who turned down the role of the Black Widow in Iron Man 2 because of a scheduling conflict with this. Only time will tell etc. etc. etc.

Rob Letterman, co-director of Monsters Vs. Aliens and therefore a man who knows his way around good gags about size discrepancies, is directing the Fox movie, which started filming last month.

Jack Black + anyone involved in Judd Apatow movies + anyone who was involved in MvA = Utter Catastrophe of an overblown mess. Amanda and Emily should run for the hills. More
