Jackson Stunned By Difficult King Kong

Director PETER JACKSON is finding it more difficult than he anticipated on the set of KING KONG - because he thought it would be easier to make than his LORD OF THE RINGS trilogy.

The film-maker has cast JACK BLACK, NAOMI WATTS, ADRIEN BRODY and Rings star ANDY SERKIS in the second re-working of the 1933 film classic about a giant ape.

And, after 106 days shooting the film in New Zealand with more to come, Jackson is already exhausted.

He says, "I'm in survival mode.

"We had some perceptions that this would be easier than The Lord Of The Rings. It's only easier in the sense there's one film instead of three but it's a tough film to make."
