Watts Confirms King Kong Role

OSCAR nominee NAOMI WATTS has confirmed she will take on the role made famous by FAY WRAY in PETER JACKSON's remake of KING KONG.

The 21 GRAMS beauty - who is hotly tipped to give favourite CHARLIZE THERON a run for her money at February's glitzy ceremony - will play damsel in distress ANN WARREN in the eagerly-anticipated movie.

She says, "I will sit in the hand of King Kong."

The film - Jackson's first since completing the revered LORD OF THE RINGS trilogy - will start shooting in August (04) and be released in December 2005.
