Jemaine Clement Joins Steven Spielberg’s The BFG

Jemaine Clement is set to star in Steven Spielberg’s adaptation of Roald Dahl’s The BFG alongside Penelope Wilton and Rebecca Hall.

“In more than 40 years of making movies, I have been on the producing end of a number of films for The Walt Disney Company, but never as a director,” says Spielberg.

According to the Mirror, Clement is cast as one of the giants along with Bill Hader. Penelope Wilton will star as the Queen and Rebecca Hall as her maid.

In The BFG Sophie encounters a giant, who collects good dreams for children, destroys nightmares and tries to keep “his nasty fellow gigantic brethren from eating “human beans”.

The new Disney film will be released on July 22, 2016.
