ANDY SERKIS GOOD TO BE THE KING?
Coming Soon, citing an article in the Toronto Star, reports that Andy Serkis, the actor whose movements and voice created the Gollum character in Peter Jackson?s LORD OF THE RINGS trilogy, may be involved with Jackson?s KING KONG remake in a similar manner. When asked about the possibility that he?ll be the performer on which the CGI Kong will be based, the response was: ? ?Ssssh!? he says, giving another mischievous smile?and a thumbs-up gesture.? KONG is already in CGI preproduction, with shooting to begin next year for a Christmas 2005 release by Universal. See Fango #229, on sale December 11, for a Jackson interview in which he discusses his KONG.
