Nighy's high hopes for Giant film

Bill Nighy has admitted he finds playing a giant in his new film "very odd".

The Love Actually actor joins a star-studded cast for the Bryan Singer-directed film Jack The Giant Killer, which also features Ewan McGregor, Stanley Tucci and Nicholas Hoult as hero Jack.

Bill said of the film: "I'm looking forward to it. it's a very odd process because it's motion capture, where I'm a giant, I'm 22 feet tall and I eat people. It's very odd but I hope it will be good.

"It's Bryan Singer so I think it will be."

The actor was reunited with a host of veteran British stars including Dame Judi Dench and Tom Wilkinson for the India-based film, The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel.

Bill revealed: "India was marvellous, I'd never been before. And like everyone says, it's a shock. It's very, very beautiful and very extreme, we met some great people. We had a really great time."
