A motion-capture adaptation of George Orwell‘s Animal Farm seems like one of those concepts that could easily go awry, but if anyone should be able to pull it off it’s Lord of the Rings and Rise of the Planet of the Apes star Andy Serkis.

He’s been plugging away at it ever since, and now says he plans to shoot the “fairly unique” project sometime next year. Hit the jump for more details, along with a minor update on the Serkis-produced The Bone Season.
