What in the name of Gondor?
If you thought the Little Mermaid/Frozen crossover was intense, then this will REALLY blow your mind!
Andy Serkis, best known for playing Golem in all six of Peter Jackson's Middle-Earth movies, has been selected to direct a live-action remake of The Jungle Book!
Though Andy has indeed been honing his skills as the second unit director on The Hobbit movies, this is quite simply a shocking move!!!
So, how did all of this happen?

Disney Warner Bros. is preparing to reboot Rudyard Kipling's wild classic, The Jungle Book!
We bet this adaptation will be pret-ty good too because the studio is in talks with Steve Kloves — the guy who wrote ALL of the Harry Potter movies — to write and direct it.
Since we loved ALL of the Harry Potter movies, we're kind of sold already. Plus, it's a great opportunity for a HAWT leading man to prance around in a leopard print loincloth for our viewing pleasure. The last actor to portray Mowgli was Jason Scott Lee, who starred in the 1994 live-action adaptation.
What Hollywood actor would U like to see reboot the role?
We would never expect any other Jungle Book movie to compare with Disney's animated classic, but hopefully this one will come close if all the right pieces fall together.
