Like he did for Gollum, Serkis will provide motion capture reference for the character of Kong, who will eventually be realized as a completely computer-generated creature.
Serkis also has been cast as Lumpy the cook, a member of the crew of the Venture, the tramp steamer that sails to Skull Island.
Andy Serkis did a great job on Gollum, and I can’t wait to see how King Kong will turn out.
I’m sure Peter Jackson will make a great movie out of it and that Serkis will be part of the creation of a perfect King Kong.
Ah, Cinema magic…
