[29.11.2004] Bei MSNBC gibt es einen lesenswerten Newsweek-Artikel, inkl. Produktionsgemälde "Kong vs. T-Rex"...
[...] after prompting from Boyens, Jackson does something unexpected. He plays an "animatic" - an animated version of a scene made for planning purposes - of the last nine minutes of his movie. In other words: Kong's final stand atop the Empire State, and his fall. The animation is no-frills. The score is a patchwork. And yet the sequence, far different from the original in its choreography and emotional depth, is stunning. Even the sound of biplanes sputtering toward the gorilla is heartbreaking, because you know that Kong is not a villain - and you know what's coming. After the sequence ends, nobody talks. Then Walsh, ordinarily that funny, bleak voice in the head, speaks up. "People always ask Pete, 'Why do you want to remake 'King Kong'?" she says. "That's why."

Dazu Serge Hascoet, Executive Director und verantwortlich für die weltweite Content-Strategie von Ubisoft: "Mit seinen kreativen Fähigkeiten verstärkt Ubisoft das Engagement, intensive Emotionen in Spielen umzusetzen, die durch die Filmindustrie inspiriert sind. Durch die interaktiven Möglichkeiten des King Kong-Spiels erfährt der Spieler all die Kraft, Dramaturgie und die Gefühle des Films."
"Ich genieße die Arbeit mit den Künstlern und freue mich über die kreativen Wege, die wir dadurch entdecken", sagt Peter Jackson.
"Durch die enge Zusammenarbeit mit dem Entwicklungsteam ermöglicht mir Ubisoft dabei behilflich zu sein, genau die Spielerfahrung zu erschaffen, die dieser neuen Version von King Kong - die Geschichte, mit der meine lebenslange Liebe zum Film begann - würdig ist."

[30.09.2004] Bei KiK gibt es das Video zu "Tag 18" der Dreharbeiten (Quicktime)... EW.com sprach mit Jack Black...
[...] While Jackson is updating the 1933 classic's creaky special effects, Black says the movie will otherwise be retro to the core. ''It's based on the first movie,'' he explains. ''Jackson's kind of pretending like the second one [the critically panned 1976 film starring Jessica Lange] never happened. And it's set in the same time period that the first movie came out, 1932, 33.'' Word has it that Jackson's remake -- like the original film -- will take place mostly on Skull Island, where filmmaker Carl Denham (Black) travels to investigate the legend of a giant ape. Denham brings the ape back to civilization with the help of Ann Darrow (Naomi Watts), on whom the massive simian has a bit of a crush.
While the original Denham [as played by Robert Armstrong] was a ruthless but controlled presence, Black intends to bring some of his characteristic wackiness to the role. ''I liked the performance by the original guy, but I'm not that guy at all,'' he says. ''I'm thinking my character's more of a P.T. Barnum type, trying to find the sensational niche to carve out for his career. I feel like they cast me in this because I could bring the passion for this character, like he's almost insane with enthusiasm for this quest.''
In the original, Denham had the last word, muttering, ''Oh no, it wasn't the airplanes. It was beauty killed the beast.'' Though Jackson wanted to keep that line in his version, he didn't want Black to say it. ''You know, I don't even know if I should say this,'' Black said. ''Someone else was going to say the line, but she just passed away. So I don't know who's saying it, if anyone's going to say it.'' And who was that mysterious woman? Ask Black. ''I can't believe I told you that thing about f---ing Fay Wray,'' he groans. [Wray, the actress forever identified as King Kong's main squeeze, died Aug. 8 at age 96.]

Craig Hall, who played gay stripper Clint in television series The Strip, will also be member of the film crew. [...]

[03.09.2004] Bei CS! gibt es eine ausführliche Pressemeldung zum Beginn der Dreharbeiten...

[31.08.2004] Der New Zealand Herald berichtet, dass Andy Serkis sich in Ruanda mit wilden Gorillas herumtreibt, um sich auf seine Hauptrolle als King Kong vorzubereiten... Ausserdem zitiert der New Zealand Herald Jack Black und Adrien Brody...
[...] "I think it's going to be gorgeous. I've seen the story board and if the movie is half as good as what the pictures I've seen look like - it could be the greatest film of all time," Black said. [...]
Brody, who won the best actor Oscar for The Pianist, said Jackson had already brought to life his "tremendous vision" by showing him several computer-animated moving story boards.
"They are not only incredibly helpful to see what he's going to bring to it, they are remarkably full of emotion. The film will obviously have more depth than those, but they are pretty powerful already. It's amazing." [...]


[15.08.2004] Bei CHUD gibt es ein schönes Teaser-Poster... Könnte sich aber auch um einen Fake handeln... ;-)

[09.08.2004] CS! berichtet über den Tod von Fay Wray...
Fay Wray, who won everlasting fame as the damsel held atop the Empire State Building by the giant ape in the 1933 film classic King Kong, has died, according to the Associated Press. She was 96.
Wray died Sunday at her Manhattan apartment, said Rick McKay, a friend and director of the last film she appeared in. There was no official cause of death.
"She just kind of drifted off quietly as if she was going to sleep," said McKay, director of the documentary Broadway: The Golden Age. "She just kind of gave out." [...]


[05.08.2004] The Daily Telegraph meldet...
[...] Filming is due to start next month on Jackson's remake of King Kong and work is two-thirds finished on a state-of-the-art $NZ12 million ($A10.95 million) sound stage in the Wellington suburb of Miramar.
Just next to the sound stage, a monster-sized "blue screen" has been built out of freight containers, more than 10m high, to create an outside "backlot".
A ship inside the backlot is a near full-sized model of the Manuia berthed at nearby Miramar wharf. Both ships will become Jackson's version of the SS Venture, the ship that took the great ape from Skull Island to New York. [...]


[01.08.2004] Bei IGN FilmForce gibt es ein Interview mit Adrien Brody...
Q: [...] You've been cast as Jack Driscoll in Peter Jackson's King Kong. A huge part in a huge film. So how do you re-imagine this character for Peter? How do you approach that?
BRODY: It's interesting because I guess it just takes on a life of its own when you do a project like that. I mean, I couldn't see myself reviewing that actor's interpretation in the '30s. I think there are a lot to be improved upon. But I also... I feel like stylistically it was really fantastic and there are elements of that behavior that I would incorporate, but not necessarily that character's interpretation. I think the characters will change to some degree and there's a lot of room for change with a new movie like that. But I kind of think you have the same problem with even playing a real life character. Like in The Pianist I think I had more of a responsibility to be true to characteristics of [Wladyslaw] Szpilman than I would to another actor's interpretation of a character in a movie.
Q: When do you start working with Peter?
BRODY: In August. [...]


[29.07.2004] HollywoodReporter.com meldet...
Jamie Bell and Evan Parke are booking a trip to Skull Island. [...] Bell will play a young cameraman who accompanies Black's character, a filmmaker, on a quest to find the giant gorilla, while Parke portrays the first mate on the Venture, the tramp steamer that sails to Skull Island. He ends up heading the rescue team sent into the jungle to save Watts' character.

[28.07.2004] SF Wire sprach mit Naomi Watts...
[...] she initially worried that her simian co-star wouldn't be on the set and would be added in later with computer graphics, but that Jackson eased her fears. "[I] won't be [acting against] nothing," Watts said in an interview. "That's one of the things he told me in our initial meeting, because I would be very worried about that. Andy Serkis is going to be not only a character in the film, but he's going to be a pair of eyes for me to look at [on set]. There's a huge amount of emotion looking [at him]." Serkis will voice the giant ape and perform him on stage as a reference for the computer animation, in the same way that he performed Gollum in Jackson's Lord of the Rings movies.
[...] Watts said she begins work on King Kong in September in New Zealand [...]


[22.07.2004] SF Wire sprach mit Adrien Brody...
[...] he's eager to play ex-fighter pilot Jack Driscoll opposite Naomi Watts and Jack Black in director Peter Jackson's much-anticipated remake of King Kong. "Well, for once I get to be, first of all, this action hero and the guy who gets the girl, in a sense," Brody said in an interview. "It's a fantastic journey. It's basically the guy who becomes the man that he wants to be."
Watts plays damsel in distress Ann Darrow, and Black plays the colorful showman, Carl Denham, in the giant-ape movie. Brody, who won an Oscar for The Pianist, said that his character "aspires to be that person who takes charge and goes for it, and I think a lot of people, for whatever reason, can't quite do that or take those steps. I'm a huge fan of Peter Jackson. He's mastered, he and his own company, the art of special effects. And although that will be a big part of it, I think their focus will be on the dramatic side as well." [...]


[04.07.2004] Stuff.co.nz berichtet über das Casting der Statisten...
[...] The film company wants men and women aged 17 years and over, and anyone interested in being extras can write to the company, listing their contact details, and include "a headshot and full-length body shot" photographs. [...]

[02.07.2004] HollywoodReporter.com meldet...
Colin Hanks and "Early Edition" star Kyle Chandler have been tapped to join the gorilla gang in Peter Jackson's "King Kong" for Universal Pictures. The duo join stars Naomi Watts, Jack Black and Adrien Brody in the reimagination of the classic story. Hanks is on board to play a production assistant to filmmaker Carl Denham (Black) with Chandler in negotiations to play a 1930s B-movie actor opposite Watts' character, Ann Darrow. [...]

[30.06.2004] AICN bietet die Möglichkeit PJ Fragen zu seinem "Kong"-Remake zu stellen... Und MTV sprach mit Jack Black...
When it was announced that Jack Black would be starring in the new remake of "King Kong," a lot of people wondered: He's not going all serious-actor guy, is he?
"There are some funny things about my character but, yeah, it is a different thing for me," Black revealed backstage at the 2004 MTV Movie Awards. "But I'm not approaching it differently. I'm approaching it with the same balls-to-the-wall attitude."
And there'll be a similar attitude throughout Peter Jackson's "Kong" remake, which Black promised will feature a much fiercer giant gorilla than some of the kinder, gentler versions.
"I just read the script for the first time. It's so rad. And it's top secret. I can't tell you much, but I can tell you this," he teased. "King Kong is going to be scary as hell, dude. He's not gonna be sweet and cuddly. It's not gonna be the cute kind [of movie]. He's a f---ing carnivore, as in, eats flesh!" [...]


[24.06.2004] HollywoodReporter.com meldet...
Thomas Kretschmann is in negotiations to join the cast of Peter Jackson's update of the 1933 classic "King Kong" for Universal Pictures, sources said, as well as another classic movie redo, "Dean Koontz's Frankenstein" for cable unit USA Network. Kretschmann ("The Pianist") would join a "Kong" cast that already includes Naomi Watts, Jack Black and Adrien Brody to play the boat captain who transports the king-sized gorilla of the film's title to America.

[15.06.2004] Bei TORn gibt es einen kleinen Set-Bericht...
[...] At the carpark behind the Stone Stree Studios in Miramar - The Mumak harness that I reported was being stored at the back of the carpark has now in fact, been taken away. The Three Foot Six truck marked "Genetics Departement" (???) that was parked there has also gone. A small shed that was located beside the back gate is also gone. What has been placed in the carpark will now prevent any more cool photos from that perspective - a two-high stack of ships containers, filled with large barrels filled with water (presumably for steadying the stack). I'm assuming it's there for giant outdoor blue-screens like they did for LOTR. One of the crew told me they're going to be building it four high. :( [...]

[11.06.2004] HollywoodReporter.com meldet, dass Andy Serkis definitiv Kong Leben einhauchen, sowie eine kleine Rolle übernehmen wird...
[...] Like he did for Gollum, Serkis will provide motion capture reference for the character of Kong, who will eventually be realized as a completely CGI creature.
Serkis also has been cast as Lumpy the cook, a member of the crew of the Venture, the tramp steamer that sails to Skull Island. [...]
Commenting on Kong himself, Jackson said: "While Andy will provide very valuable onset reference, this doesn't mean we will be softening Kong by attempting to humanize him. The power of the story lies in the fact that this is a savage beast from a hostile environment, and we don't intend to compromise that." [...]


[10.06.2004] Cirdan sprach mit dem CGI-Künstler Matthias Menz...
[...] Als nächstes arbeitest du am neuen Peter Jackson Film KING KONG mit. Was kannst du schon darüber verraten?
Ich sage nur Haare, Haare, Haare! *lacht* , wenn PJ offizell meint, er ist sich erst jetzt über die Möglichkeiten von Computergrafik richtig bewusst geworden, au backe, da werden wohl wieder Grenzen verschoben...


[19.05.2004] CS! berichtet über Vorbereitungen in L.A...
Just wanted to let you know that filming for King Kong has started on the Universal backlot, as of yesterday. While I was roaming around, I was able to see all the trailers for the cast. I wasn't aware that they had got back from New Zealand to film, so it may also be that they are filming some exteriors. New York st. has been decorated to look 1930's. The crew was tearing down a section of buildings to be replaced with 1930's New York looks. Mostly they were only replacing the top of the buildings. I got to see PJ's trailer, as it said "PJ" on the door. Other decorations included broken telephone poles, phone booths, exposed wires everywhere, and blocks of concrete.

[04.05.2004] Quint und Mitchell "The Phoenix" Hall berichten für AICN über den Stand der Dinge...
[...] I've heard from my sources in Kiwi-land that they've been filming the miniature sets on KONG for a while, but that the main photography won't begin for another few months. I saw a little bit of WETA's work on my last trip to the land of indescribable beauty and it was top notch. God only knows what Richard Taylor and his merry band of misfits have concocted since then. [...]
I was talking to Richard Taylor from WETA workshop. He said they've already been working for fifteen months on King Kong and are up to the bit where King Kong starts to fight the giant beasts. [...]


[27.04.2004] Bei CS! gibt es einen Auszug aus einem "Entertainment Weekly"-Artikel...
[...] "We are not reinventing it," says Jackson referring to the 1933 original film. "Our story follows the same structure. It satrts in New York, goes to Skull Island, and there's dinosaurs on the island. Then it comes back to New York and there's the Empire State Building and the biplanes and the whole thing."
He says that one thing they're trying to do that the original didn't is to make it more "emotionally truthful. I put that ahead of anything else, including technology and the realism of the effects," he adds.
"Everybody's image of 'King Kong' is that it's this amazing beauty-and-the-beast love story. And when you look at the original film, there is as sense that Kong is feeling an attraction toward Ann-probably the first empathy he's felt in his life toward another living creature. But Ann is not giving him a thing. She just looks at him as an object of horror the entire time. She screams at him, she's terrified. Her relationship with Kong doesn't go beyond that. We're having a lot of fun making it more psychologically real." [...]


[31.03.2004] Bei AICN gibt es einen Kommentar zu einer Variety-Meldung, die man bei CS! nachlesen kann...
Adrien Brody (The Pianist) is in talks with Universal Pictures to join the cast of Peter Jackson's King Kong, says Variety.
The Oscar winner has been offered the role of Jack Driscoll, a former World War I fighter pilot who is the love interest for archaeologist Ann Darrow, to be played by Naomi Watts.
On Monday, the studio announced that Jack Black will play showman Carl Denham who brings the giant gorilla to New York City from Skull Island.
Filling the Driscoll role is the last major casting to be done for the film, adds the trade. In the 1933 original, Driscoll spends much of the film trying to rescue Ann Darrow from Kong after the ape takes a liking to the beauty.


[30.03.2004] Bei AICN gibt es einen lesenswerten Kommentar zu folgender HollywoodReporter.com-Meldung...
Jack Black has been in cast in Peter Jackson's remake of "King Kong" for Universal Pictures. Jackson and Fran Walsh will produce the film under their WingNut Films banner. Black will play Carl Denham, an adventurous filmmaker and showman trying to make a name for himself in 1930s New York. Robert Armstrong played the role in the 1933 original. Black joins Naomi Watts, who is playing Ann Darrow, an American actress who makes a living performing in Broadway song and dance shows. Fay Wray starred as Darrow in the original.

[19.03.2004] One News meldet...
[...] One News understands Jackson has bought a boat which will be transformed to carry King Kong, but Richard Taylor of Weta Workshop wouldn't elaborate.
"It's mean to be a secret. It's just a special opportunity - a beautiful American film, a wonderful story and we're getting to bring it to life back here in Wellington."


[10.03.2004] Bei TORn gibt es ein Bild von einem Schiff, welches voraussichtlich in PJ's "King Kong" explodieren darf... SF Wire sprach mit Elijah Wood, der evtl. einen kleinen Gastauftritt in "King Kong" haben wird...
[...] What role would Wood like? "I've talked about" it with Jackson, he said. "I just said I wanted to come down and visit and hopefully be allowed to be stomped on by a foot. So hopefully I'll have something like that." [...]

[01.03.2004] Harry von AICN weiss mehr über das Casting und die Charaktere... SPOILER !!!
[...] Turns out that KING KONG is entering the serious casting phase of things and currently they're looking to cast 4 parts. Now, there's no telling how big these parts will end up, or if these are characters that will be throughout the film at the same level as Ann Darrow, Jack Driscoll and Carl Denham... but, it gives us a tidbit of insight into what Peter Jackson, Fran Walsh and the Queen of the Geeks is up to. [...]

[25.02.2004] Harry von AICN schreibt...
[...] One tidbit that I got from Peter recently is this. For Carl Denham's crew that are on Skull Island to shoot his "latest movie" within the film, he is of course seeking out vintage film equipment... of the era. WELL - one such item is extra special. If you see Denham hold up a light meter in the film before capturing the spectacle of the natives "Kong" dance... That Light Meter is the same Light Meter that Willis O'Brien used in checking the light levels on all the stop-motion animation shots in the making of the original KING KONG! That's one of those minor little tidbits of trivia, but for anyone that is a geek of film history - it's cool to know!

[24.02.2004] Der Hollywood Reporter sprach mit PJ, u.a. über "King Kong"...
[...] It's too early to say about cast, apart from Naomi Watts, who's now confirmed. We need to write for a few more weeks to establish exactly what type of other characters we are looking for. I'm hoping there will be suitable roles for one or two "LOTR" actors. As far as crew go, "LOTR" veterans include Jan Blenkin and Caro Cunningham, both of whom are producing "Kong" with me; Andrew Lesnie is on board as (director of photography); Grant Major is production designer; Dan Hennah is supervising art director. Both Weta Workshop, led by Richard Taylor, and Weta Digital have been at work on "Kong" for some months now. Howard Shore is doing the music. We are talking to all other crew at the moment and imagine the majority will be "LOTR" veterans. [...]

[...] Fran and Philippa said they still haven't really started writing it yet, which is scary to them because they start shooting in August! Anything set in stone? "It's definitely 1933 and it's definitely a gorilla!" [...]

[30.01.2004] U-Daily News meldet...
FROM 'KING' TO 'KONG': "Lord of the Rings: Return of the King" co-writer Philippa Boyens isn't letting thoughts of the film's 11 Academy Awards nominations - including her own - stop her from focusing on her next project. She can't. There's no time. She is again working with "LOTR" filmmaker Peter Jackson (they share "Return of the King" writing credits with Fran Walsh), penning his planned new version of "King Kong." The new "Kong" has "21 Grams" Oscar nominee Naomi Watts attached to star, and it's already set for an August production start.
"We're doing some work on it right now," says New Zealander Boyens, who adds that being back in the States - in L.A., to be exact - has helped her get into the American mind-set. "This is such an American story."


[28.01.2004] TheMovieBox.Net meldet...
E! News Daily's Correspondent David Adelson attented the annual BAFTA/LA luncheon held in Los Angeles on Saturday and interviewed todays Academy Award nominees Naomi Watts and director Peter Jackson on the whereabouts of Jackson's next film project King Kong.
DA:You will be cast in King Kong?
NW: I will sit in the hand of King Kong (laughs.)
DA: When do you start filming?
NW: August
PJ: I just want to approach King Kong as a drama.. not as a fantasy.. not as anything other than a straight drama and explore what would really happen in that situation and I think would be interesting.


[05.01.2004] Cindy Pearlman zitiert Peter Jackson...
[...] "I've loved 'King Kong' ever since I was a kid and it inspired me to make films. There's a generation of kids now who don't love old films with jerky special FX [effects] and the heightened acting styles of the '30s. That's why I wanted to do a new 'Kong,' " he says.
As for some insider know-how, Jackson says he will "approach 'Kong' in a very similar way to how I approached 'Lord of the Rings.' You take a property, whether it is an old film or a beloved old book, and you just simply have a vision for it in your mind. You can see the movie and get excited about it all over again." [...]
