WARNER'S JUNGLE BOOK TO BE DIRECTED BY ANDY SERKIS


This might come as a bit of a surprise to the non-nerds among us, but film star Andy Serkis is also film director Andy Serkis, having served as second unit director on all three of Peter Jackson's Hobbit films. Serkis will direct an adaptation of Rudyard Kipling's The Jungle Book for Warner Bros, after first choice director Alejandro Gonzalez Inarritu backed out. That's Warner Bros., not Disney, whose own version of Kipling's novel is already being cast and is set to be directed by Jon Favreau.
