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.

    Admire bryan singer story telling, not easy if you introducing a large cast.. As someone who do not know anything about x-men lore or identify himself as superhero geek.. His x-men 2000 film grab my interest on the series.. Still remember that powerful opening scene, the nazi concentration camp.. really set the theme of the series.. Found some of the other superhero movies.. Too comical for my taste still,.. Will see this movie on the first day of opening..

    1) Daredevil was ten years ago, and its problems were the director and script writers' fault. 2) Maybe but look at James Bond and hell even Batman throughout the years, people will get over it. 3) I want to tell you to check out the Town and Hollywoodland to see him act well, but you'd seem too hell bent to ever change your mind.
