Watts Fears King Kong Role

NAOMI WATTS is dreading her upcoming KING KONG role, because she fears she'll be spending days staring at something on a green screen.

LORD OF THE RINGS star ANDY SERKIS will play the personification of the big ape in the PETER JACKSON remake, and Watts hopes she'll be performing with him and not to a tennis ball on a string when filming on the epic begins.

She says, "I don't know what they're gonna do about King Kong himself, but I do know that there's a pair of eyes to look at - from Andy Serkis, who played GOLLUM in Lord of the Rings, and that's the vital key.

"They'll probably put him on a ladder, but it would horrible to think I would be looking at an 'X' or a kind of thorn on a stick because there's a lot of emoting to do."
