He aims to portray the 25-foot gorilla as an "absolutely believable creature" who bears the scars of many battles.

As for the romantic angle, Jackson said he will show King Kong as a brutal creature who for the first time in his life feels empathy for another creature (the character played by Naomi Watts).

Promising to use the full array of special effects created by his Weta digital workshop, he said, "We will play on the similarities between the jungle of the New York skyscrapers and the jungle where King Kong lives."
