  Gollum actor lands monster role
Updated 11 June 2004, 14.10
Andy Serkis
He's played a miserable little monster, now Gollum actor Andy Serkis is set to portray a big angry one.

Lord Of The Rings director Peter Jackson has enlisted Andy to help create giant ape King Kong for his re-make of the legendary 1933 film.

Andy provided the voice for Gollum and some of his facial and body movements were included in the character.

Andy's acting will bring the monster to life using the latest technology. The film is coming out in December 2005.

"I expect this time round will be a very different experience for both Andy and myself as we'll actually get to shoot extended drama sequences together," said Peter, who directed the films of the LOTR trilogy.

Andy's got two parts in the film - he's set to play Lumpy the cook as well.

King Kong is scheduled to start shooting in New Zealand in August.
