  27. “You really can’t do a remake. I mean, ‘King Kong’ needed its turn to be remade. It needed an update. But the ‘Bad News Bears,’ or ‘The Shaggy D.A.,’ those are classic movies.

  33. “Rather than something like King Kong where I really went after studying gorillas in the wild and captivity. I based Caesar [ from the Rise of the Planet of the Apes] on a real chimpanzee and I worked with Terry [Notary] on a lot of chimpanzee movement.” ~ Andy Serkis
