Andy Serkis is Gollum and Second Unit Director on "The Hobbit"

Posted: April 7th, 2011 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
Andy Serkis is Gollum and Second Unit Director on "The Hobbit"Submit Comment
Andy Serkis, who played Gollum in Peter Jackson's "The Lord of the Rings," is reprising his role as the creature in "The Hobbit" films, but has also been hired by Jackson to serve as a second unit director on the two prequels which are not in production in New Zealand.

"I think I understand Peter's sensibility and we have a common history of understanding Middle Earth," said Serkis. "A lot of the crew from 'The Lord of the Rings' was returning to work on 'The Hobbit.' There is really a sense of Peter wanting people around him who totally understand the material and the work ethic."

Serkis has already done some directing, including performance capture on a couple of video games including "Heavenly Sword." But, he said: "When Peter asked me, there was this email out of the blue. It was a fantastic surprise."

When he completes "The Hobbit" movies, Serkis aims to direct his first live-action feature.

Sounds promising, although this is his first time, I can't say whether he'll do a great job or not.

I think he will be closely supervised by Jackson.

On a sidenote: If you haven't seen "Burke and Hare", do so.

which are not in production in New Zealand.

They're NOT in production?? So all of the stories building up to this point have been sick tasteless jokes Alex you scoundrel! But seriously hurry up and get these films made before the cgi looks so amazing it makes the original trilogy look like cartoons.

"Andy Serkis is Gollum in The Hobbit": We already knew that.

"Andy Serkis is the second unit director in the Hobbit": Who f*cking care?

The list is flawed, deeply flawed. How are we to know that certain characters like the Robinson family from Lost in Space haven't gone on to make billions or that the guy from Slumdog Millionaire hasn't invested his winnings into a soap factory in Malaysia.
