George Orwell‘s Animal Farm is going to be adapted by Andy Serkis and the power of Mo-Cap, set to be released in 2014. The name should ring a bell from his work in Lord of the Rings, Rise of the Planet of the Apes, and as the second unit director on the Hobbit trilogy. Does Serkis have the chops to tackle George Orwell work or will it be pushing digital daisy? Who know, but it is an interesting prospect.
No names were reveled for the cast just yet but Serkis noted that artist Michael Kutsche, famous for his work on Thor was working on the film, which is titillating as I love the way that movie looks.[via /Film]
