Andy Serkis to Direct ‘Animal Farm’ Adaptation

October 22, 2012 at 1:45 pm by deej  - 

The Hollywood Reporter has announced that Andy Serkis’ production company, The Imaginarium, has secured the film rights to George Orwell’s classic novel ‘Animal Farm’, as well as the Samantha Shannon series ‘The Bone Season’.  

In discussing his approach to ‘Animal Farm’, Serkis says “I think we found a rather fresh way of looking at it.  It is definitely using performance capture, but we are using an amalgamation of filming styles to create the environmments.”  In addition to directing, Serkis also plans to act in the film.  

To read the rest of the article (including his opinion of the 48 fps technology used in ‘The Hobbit’), head over to The Hollywood Reporter.

    It’s disappointing that he’s decided to shove the politics off to one side of the story. The politics is the whole point of the book. It’s not a cute talking animal story; it’s a dark tale of what happens when power is twisted and corrupted for political gain. Sad to see Serkis being so gutless.
