Kretschmann to join King Kong Cast

The Hollywood reporter states, "Thomas Kretschmann is in negotiations to join the cast of Peter Jackson's update of the 1933 classic King Kong for Universal Pictures, sources said, as well as another classic movie redo, Dean Koontz's Frankenstein for cable unit USA Network. Kretschmann ("The Pianist") would join a "Kong" cast that already includes Naomi Watts, Jack Black and Adrien Brody to play the boat captain who transports the king-sized gorilla of the film's title to America."

It seems that every other movie being released is a remake now. I don't understand the surge in remakes now but I think we'll have to pit up with it until Hollywood realizes its a bad idea to rehash the classics.
