Gollum Actor to Become King Kong
In an interview with the TORONTO STAR, actor Andy Serkis, the man behind LORD OF THE RINGS: THE TWO TOWERs scene-stealing CG character Gollum, alluded to his re-teaming with RINGS director Peter Jackson as the big ape in KING KONG. The article stated, Serkis has an even bigger assignment ahead of him. Rumour has it he'll be the face of King Kong in Peter Jackson's planned 2005 remake of the legendary ape epic. Ssssh! he says, giving another mischievous smile and a thumbs-up gesture. Only time will tell if this will pan out, but it creates an interesting new dimension to the world of cinema digital acting superstars.
