Peter Jackson Talks On 'King Kong'[Monday, January 5th, 2004]
The Chicago Sun-Times Cindy Pearlman spoke with Peter Jackson on his next movie King Kong.
"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."
