KONG DESIGNS BEGUN
From a scooper for Aint It Cool News:
So where does [director Peter] Jackson?s current crew stand? Well, the pickups for RETURN OF THE KING are happening soon, and we believe that some designers in WETA have already begun designs for Kong himself. When funding initially fell through for KONG back in 1997, Jackson had already done alot of pre-production work on the guy and just moved everyone working on that production directly over to LORD OF THE RINGS. Expect another such switch as post-production on ROTK winds down, with the hundreds of crew finishing up their LOTR work and moving instantly... directly back to KONG.
