Andy Serkis: ‘Mowgli’ much closer to Rudyard Kipling’s book

Andy Serkis has revealed that his upcoming live-action drama ‘Mowgli’ will be closer to the world of Rudyard Kipling’s ‘The Jungle Book’.

In an interview, Serkis said: “Actors should be able to play anything, and that’s why I love performance capture technology.

“What should be the point is that whatever colour your skin is, whatever shape you are, whatever height you are, whatever your make-up is as an actor, you should have the ability to play anything.”

So, in the wake of the backlash, Johansson dropped out of the film and a replacement is yet to be announced.

It’s not the first time Johansson has got into trouble with her casting in a role. She was earlier accused of the film ‘Ghost In The Shell’ when she was controversially cast as Major Motoko Kusanagi, a character who was Japanese in the original series that the film was based on.
