Andy Serkis has become synonymous with motion capture performance and for good reason. Just look at his resume: he was Gollum in the 'Lord of the Rings' films, the title ape himself in 'King Kong,' Caesar in 'Rise of the Planet of the Apes' and 'Captain Haddock in 'The Adventures of Tin Tin.' It's probably safe to say that he knows this kind of filmmaking like the back of his hand. So it's not surprising that his directorial debut will be a motion capture project, but it's a little surprising that it will be an adaptation of George Orwell's 'Animal Farm.'
