    A Sequel to Kong!
    Source: KongIsKing.net
    April 1, 2005

    Today, a very trim-looking Peter Jackson announced in his regular production diaries at KongIsKing.net that a sequel to King Kong is already well underway with all of the cast from the first film returning.

    According to Jackson, they've had to keep the sequel a secret, but the plans quickly came together while shooting the movie when some money that Universal was going to use for a third Riddick movie became available. (Essentially, Vin's loss is our gain!) The sequel will shoot back-to-back with production of the first movie, which just finished principal photography, with Jack Black, Naomi Watts, and Adrien Brody all returning. Andy Serkis will once again be performing the motion capture to be used to create King Kong's kin.

    You can hear Jackson and the cast talk about the sequel, as well as see some early footage and hear the ideas behind the sequel at the links below:

    Of course, this could be one of the most elaborate April Fools' pranks ever played, but surely, Peter Jackson wouldn't do something like that to all his fans, would he?

    Either way, King Kong is opening on December 14.

    Kong Sequels a Prank

    Looks like Peter Jackson got us!

    On Friday, Jackson announced, as part of his video diary on KongIsKing.net, that he had already started working on two sequels to King Kong and that "Son of Kong" would start production immediately. The footage included shots of a script for the proposed sequel, models and interviews with most of the primary cast as well as a Universal exec, talking about why they wanted to do the sequel, etc.

    It seemed a bit too good to be true and the chosen day to announce the sequels just seemed far too coincidential and suspect, but who were we to doubt Jackson? Surely, a busy director like him wouldn't go so far just for an April Fools' Joke, right? Wrong!

    The Hollywood Reporter announced today that sadly, the whole thing was just an elaborate joke done to coincide with April Fools' Day. Of course, most of the people who fell for it--including entertainment news sites like this one--probably thought it was a great idea, and it did help get us even more excited for Jackson's adaptation of King Kong.

    At least he didn't play with our hearts and say that he had signed an agreement to direct The Hobit!

      Hobbit, that'd be the shit.
      Though King Kong woulda been worth watching I think... Granted Godzilla and Planet Of The Apes remakes were bullshit, but I trust Peter Jackson's view, should he ever choose to REALLY do an adaptation of Hobbit or Kong.
