MUMBAI: 20th Century Fox has decided to bring the most popular ape back in an animated avatar. King Kong is returning in a modern-day setting.

The tale, which was screened last by director Peter Jackson and Universal Pictures in 2005 starring Naomi Watts, Jack Black and Adrien Brody, generated $550mn at the box office. It was the fourth highest grossing film in Universal Pictures history. It also won Academy awards for Best Visual Effects, Best Sound Mixing and Best Sound Editing.






Going by the popularity, Fox decided to bring an animated version of the film for which Christian Magalhaes and Bob Snow will write the script. This time, the story will be from the ape's point of view. King Kong, the true villain who dies trying to protect his love will be seen verbally expressing his heartbreak in the animated version.

At present, when sequels and prequels are making news, restructuring a classic film from the original villain's point of view qualifies as unconventional thinking. The 1993 original was remade in 1976 and 1986.

The animation remake will be produced by Shawn Levy's 21 Laps and Ted Field's Radar Pictures.
