Skull Island King Kong movie from Legendary

In a surprise announcement on Saturday in San Diego Comic-Con’s Hall H, Legendary Pictures revealed their plans for a new King Kong film called Skull Island and showed the crowd a sneak peek video.

Now, Deadline reports that the studio has offered the directing job to Joe Cornish, who made his feature directorial debut with 2011’s well-received Attack the Block. No word yet on whether Cornish will accept the gig, which is said to be an origin story/prequel tale set on the behemoth ape’s island home, Skull Island. The filmmaker has reportedly been getting quite a bit of offers for big films, such as Universal’s Section Six, the James Bond-esque action-spy film written by Aaron Berg.

From Legendary regarding Skull Island:

Previous works have touched on the island, but staying and exploring this mysterious and dangerous place offers Legendary the opportunity to take audiences deeper inside this rich world with a style and scope that parallels other Legendary productions.

It’s unknown at this time whether Skull Island will be a standalone story, or if it will be a prequel to a previous King Kong movie — the original 1933 film or the 2005 remake by Peter Jackson.

Legendary also has control over the Godzilla franchise, having just released Godzilla earlier this year, so speculation is that the studio might eventually remake King Kong vs. Godzilla.

Skull Island is scheduled for release in theaters on November 4, 2016.
