If you liked the way Robert Zemeckis worked his motion-capture magic with THE POLAR EXPRESS and BEOWULF, and are anxious to see his 3-D version of A CHRISTMAS CAROL, then chances are you'll be excited to hear that Spirit Pictures has just acquired the rights to a graphic novel called "Kong: King of Skull Island," and is planning on adapting it into a motion capture film along the same vein as the aforementioned.  Zemeckis is not attached to the film, and Spirit Pictures is planning on using their studios to produce the animation.

The graphic novel tells the story of everyone's favorite ape and how he came to be the king of that lonely island out in the middle of nowhere. The story features many other beasts that have only been slightly explored in the previous films.  It was published about the same time that Peter Jackson was getting his amazing remake of the classic movie ready for theaters, and written by Joe DeVito and Brad Strickland.
