Andy Serkis To Helm ANIMAL FARM

By AMC October 22, 2012

Andy Serkis, who has become famous for his performance capture performances as "The Lord of the Rings"' Gollum, "Rise of the Planet of the Apes"' Caesar and "The Adventures of Tintin'"s Captain Haddock (not to mention King Kong) also stepped behind the director's chair on the second unit set of Peter Jackson's "The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey", recently.

It looks as though Serkis will capitalize on that experience as he heads into his feature film directorial debut with an adaptation of George Orwell's classic allegorical novel "Animal Farm" for Imaginarium.

The novel, first published in 1945, looks at the rise of communism through the story of an uprising on a farm.

Serkis will be utilizing performance capture technology and is considering both 3D and the 48FPS that Jackson used on "The Hobbit."

We will keep you updated as details emerge.
