Andy Serkis directing performance captured Animal Farm

Brando in a latex bodysuit, Andy Serkis, is set to direct a performance captured adaptation of George Orwell’s novel Animal Farm.

In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, he revealed it would be the first project for his London-based performance capture studio The Imaginarium (which recalls, in a good way, Troy and Abed’s ‘Dreamatorium’ from Community).

Serkis will employ “an amalgamation of filming styles” to bring the communist allegory to life.

“We’re keeping it fable-istic and [aimed at] a family audience. We are not going to handle the politics in a heavy-handed fashion. It is going to be emotionally centered in a way that I don’t think has been seen before.”

We’ll assume he’ll don the mo-cap dots to play either Napoleon or Snowball.

There is no release date set for the film, which remains in the “proof-of-concept” stage.
