Andy Serkis Says 'Jungle Book' Adaptation 'Doesn't Shy Away From Its Darkness'

What I love about the screen adaptation by Steve and Callie Kloves is it's very truthful to the original book; it doesn’t shy away from its darkness. The jungle is a Garden of Eden and a wonderful place for Mowgli to grow up in, but also is a place of fear and a place of threat.

I'm disappointed Andy Serkis is directing this because I think it's a waste of his time.  Honestly, why is Warner Bros trying to adapt the same movie Disney is and a year later at that?


There's no way both will be a success when both are the same exact story release exactly a year apart.
