JACKSON TALKS KING KONG
Variety columnist Army Archerd talked to 'The Lord of the Rings' director Peter Jackson at the annual Oscar nominees luncheon about his next film, Universal's King Kong.
In August he starts filming back in New Zealand with Naomi Watts, of whom, he says, 'I've been a fan for years.' As for Kong himself, Jackson says, 'We want him to be quite real.' And the period of the film will be the same as the original - 1933 - with the Empire State Building and the biplane, 'which is ingrained in memory. I want to be respectful.'
After that, he admits, 'I want to make smaller films.'
