Naomi Watts, Jack Black, and Adrien Brody have arrived in Wellington, New Zealand to prepare for the filming next month of Peter Jackson's King Kong, which Universal Pictures will release December 14, 2005. The New Zealand Herald has two interesting articles with the cast talking about the production. Here's a clip from the first article which features quotes from the three stars:

"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.

He described the tour, which included special effects houses Weta Workshop and Weta Digital as "unbelievable".

this article talks about how Andy Serkis has studied and interacted with wild gorillas in Rwanda to prepare for doing the motions of King Kong in the film:

The film's leading lady, Naomi Watts, has revealed that Serkis, the model for the computer-generated Gollum in The Lord of the Rings, has been to Rwanda to observe and interact with wild gorillas.

He even painted pictures with them.

"He's extraordinary, the amount of research he's done. He brought back incredible tapes of all that (gorilla) behaviour that we need to get very familiar with," she said.

Stay tuned for lots more on the highly-anticipated movie!
