Gollum and The Factor are apparently finest buds. This in keeping with Jamie Bell, who is ready to star as Ben Grimm, aka The Thing, within the highly anticipated reboot of “Unbelievable Four.”
Bell opened up about his role during a Wednesday interview with AOL Build, revealing he worked with renowned efficiency capture actor Andy Serkis, who helped create such characters as Gollum/Smeagol in “The Lord of the Rings,” King Kong in the eponymous 2005 film and Caesar in the new “Planet of the Apes” franchise, to nail turning into The Factor.
“Clearly I’m not manufactured from rocks and clearly I am not 6 foot 8!” Bell, 29, joked through the Q&A. “It is about capturing the essence of a human being inside of that character when he’s reworked and you do this by way of motion capture. It is a method that my friend Andy Serkis has very much spearheaded — he is the guru of performance capture. I have been fortunate to work with him three or 4 times truly, so I very much consider him my mentor.”
Bell added that although he adopted a strict weight loss plan and train routine whereas filming, his part in the motion film was more about “puppeteering a personality who in any other case would not exist” by way of motion seize. Still, he undoubtedly took the position very severely.
“It’s a huge responsibility,” he stated. “I feel folks have been kind of confused when I used to be solid, but this could be very a lot an origin story of Wars these characters. I haven’t seen the film but,” he continued, “I am very excited to see it, but what I can let you know is just from the making of the film and the journey that we have been on with it, it’s totally much an expertise, it really is. I am very flattered and humbled to be part of it.”
Empire debuted the first official picture of Bell as the Factor on Thursday, and it appears to be like like he really embraced the great thing about animation and CGI.
It clobberin time!
