    It could include an earlier group of off-island humans. That map that Carl Denham acquired in KING KONG must've came from somewhere. ;)

    That would be so awesome, but Kong would have to be HUGE in order to challenge the redesigned Godzilla. I'll cross my fingers for it to happen, though! :D

    This sounds fascinating. Wonder if they will go into detail as to any origin behind Kong. Maybe a mommy & daddy Kong? :D

    Joe Cornish receiving the offer to direct SKULL ISLAND is amazing! I loved ATTACK THE BLOCK! I met Cornish a couple years ago... one of the nicest, naturally-funny guys I've ever met. He writes beautiful dialogue, though... it'd be a shame if he can't chime in on the writing process of the film. As much as I loved the new GODZILLA, some of the dialogue that Max Borenstein penned was absolutely cringe-worthy (i.e. that awful telephone sequence between Ford and his wife). So yeah, hopefully Cornish can co-write alongside Borenstein.

    I have to say, I'm really happy about the attention that so many of my favourite writer/directors have been receiving. Edgar Wright received all the acclaim first and now it looks like Cornish and Gareth Edwards are following suit. Hopefully the writer/director of TROLLHUNTER, André Øvredal, can receive the next big break! :D

    Pushed back to March 10, 2017. :(

    Official synopsis...

    In the spirit of its worldwide blockbusterGodzilla, Legendary Pictures presents a bold new take on the mythos of another iconic beast with Kong: Skull Island, which stars Tom Hiddleston (The Avengers and Thor series).

    Directed by Jordan Vogt-Roberts (The Kings of Summer) and written by John Gatins (Flight) and Max Borenstein (Godzilla), Kong: Skull Island will fully immerse audiences in the mysterious and dangerous home of the king of the apes as a team of explorers ventures deep inside the treacherous, primordial island. Legendary’s story honors the foundations of existing King Kong lore, but places it in an entirely new, distinct timeline.

    Thomas Tull (Godzilla, The Dark Knight, Pacific Rim) and Jon Jashni (Godzilla, Warcraft) will produce and Alex Garcia (Godzilla) will executive produce. The film will be released in 3D and IMAX 3D by Universal Pictures.
