Andy Serkis is a very busy man — and avid appreciator of literature, apparently.
Nick Hornby, himself a beloved novelist, is adapting the 1996 book for the screen.
It isn't news that the book is being adapted; rather, the noteworthy event is Serkis's addition.
The Giant's House tells the story of two misfits — lonely librarian Peggy and "over-tall" adolescent James — who find each other in an unexpected friendship.
It was a National Book Award finalist in 1996.
