Jason Mitchell

Last weekend, Straight Outta Compton took the number one spot at the box office for the second week running, and looking at the schedule of films, it might take it again for a third.

In fact, Hawkins has already been building himself to be a major star even before he landed the role of Dr. Dre by signing on for Universal and Legendary Pictures’ Kong: Skull Island. As the film prepares to shoot for a fall start date, there are new reports confirming that he will be joined by his fellow Straight Outta Compton co-star Mitchell. More on the story below.

King Kong Movie Skull Island from Legendary Pictures

It is only a matter of weeks before Legendary’s King Kong-prequel Skull Island, starring Tom Hiddleston and Brie Larson, starts to film, but not before a final script is turned in. This isn’t anything new, as scripts are constantly being rewritten in order to perfect the narrative, and now Universal is doing an in-house hire before the script can be finalized. According to a new report, Jurassic World co-writer Derek Connolly has been tapped to polish the script.

King Kong Movie Skull Island from Legendary Pictures

The United States of Tara star Brie Larson has entered into negotiations to play the female lead in the King Kong origins movie, Kong: Skull Island.

Larson would join Thor, The Avengers, and Crimson Peak star Tom Hiddleston on the cast. The cast also once included recent Academy Award nominee Michael Keaton and recent Academy Award winner J.K.
