Andy Serkis is a very busy man — and avid appreciator of literature, apparently.

In addition to working on Animal Farm, Serkis is also directing a film adaptation of the novel The Giant's House by Elizabeth McCracken, reports Deadline.

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.
