Famous for bringing to life CGI characters like King Kong, The Lord of the Rings' Gollum, Rise of the Planet of the Apes' Caesar and The Adventures of Tintin's Captain Haddock, Andy Serkis is currently racking up quite a deal of directing experience serving as the second unit director on Peter Jackson's upcoming The Hobbit trilogy. Now, The Hollywood Reporter brings word that Serkis is planning to fully helm The Imaginarium's upcoming adaptation of George Orwell's Animal Farm.
Published in 1945, the novel serves as allegory for the rise of communism and details a sociopolitical uprising amongst barnyard animals.
The Imaginarium, a recently-formed production company, plans to utilize performance capture technology to bring the characters to life, although Serkis stresses that work is still being done to nail the precise approach. He notes that, like The Hobbit, the adaptation may make use of 3D and high frame rate photography.

Wow, the Dems will be UP IN ARMS over this, considering that this book attacks Communism.
Don't count on it. By the time Hollywood gets through with it it could be a celebration of our new commie overlords.
