Tenacious Kong: Jack Black Joins King Kong Remake

Winning 11 Oscars is impressive, but casting Jack Black in a "King Kong" remake is downright genius. That's right, Jack Black is going to be in Peter Jackson's "Kong" film. The Hollywood Reporter says Black will take on the role of Carl Denham, an "adventurous filmmaker and showman trying to make a name for himself in 1930s New York."

Naomi Watts has already been cast as Ann Darrow, the starlet Kong takes a liking to.

"Kong" is scheduled for release in December 2005. We'll be keeping an eye on further developments on our "King Kong" spotlight page. -- Mac Slocum
