Jackson Offers Kong Peek

In his production diary on www.kongisking.net, director/producer Peter Jackson has added a new behind-the-scenes look at progress on his big-budget remake of King Kong for Universal pictures. The CG-laden movie began filming last week in Jackson’s native New Zealand.

The video clip is from day 4 of principal photography and shows Naomi Watts in costume as vaudeville actress Anne Darrow and Jack Black decked out as eccentric entrepreneur Carl Denham. On that particular day, the team was shooting a café sequence in which Denham recruits Darrow for his expedition to Skull Island.

In addition to Jackson’s production diary, www.kngisking.net offers a production scrapbook, a brief history of King Kong films and news on all things Kong related. It even promises to show some storyboards at a later dates.
