Irish actor Chris O’Dowd is joining the newest version of Gulliver’s Travels as Edward, Gulliver’s Lilliputian nemesis. The film, which also stars Jack Black, Jason Segal, and Emily Blunt is being directed by Rob Letterman (Monsters vs. Aliens) from a script originally penned by Joe Stillman (Shrek 2), with additional work done by Nicholas Stoller (Yes Man) and Thomas Lennon & Robert Ben Garant (Reno 911, Night at the Museum: Battle of the Smithsonian).

The newest version focuses on travel writer Lemuel Gulliver, who while on a Bermuda Triangle assignment gets sidetracked to the secret island of Lilliput. I dunno, whenever you put Jack Black in anything it just seems like the Jack Black show. I know people love him, but Year One looks chuckle-worthy at best. Mark my words, that film will be saved by co-stars.
