Warner Bros. Studio has pushed back the release date for ‘The Jungle Book.’ the anticipated live action of Rudyard Kipling’s 1894 novel of the same name.
The movie directed by Andy Serkis, is moving back an entire year, (from Oct. 6, 2017, to Oct. 19, 2018) but Serkis and his crew seemed to be pleased with the change.”The ambition for this project is huge.” said Serkis on Wednesday, “What we are attempting is an unprecedented level of psychological and emotional nuance in morphing the phenomenal performances of our cast into the facial expressions of our animals.”
He also added: “So, every minute more that we have to evolve the technological pipeline will make all the difference. … The evidence is there already and it’s off the chain exciting, so hang on in there. …This is truly next-generation storytelling, and it will be the real deal!”
