Andy Serkis — also known as Gollum in the Lord of the Rings movies and The Hobbit’s second unit director — is set to take a break from the Tolkien universe to direct the live-action The Jungle Book from Warner Bros., according to The Hollywood Reporter.

This will be the actor’s feature directing debut. Babel director Alejandro González Iñárritu was previously in the running to direct.

This The Jungle Book is one of two Jungle Book films in the works right now — the other is being made by Disney.
