Just announced at their Hall H panel at San Diego Comic-Con, Legendary Pictures have revealed plans for a new “King Kong” film to be titled Skull Island. A short teaser for the film was played and our own Ed Douglas described it as follows:
“It’s a teaser that shows a jungle surrounded by water with a lot of narration. We see images of monkeys swinging through trees, some sort of dinosaur like creature in the water…The narration talks about “It’s very existence being improbable. Being alone in the wilderness had driven it mad. We penetrated deeper and deeper into the heart of darkness.” And yes indeed, they showed an image of what is CLEARLY King Kong roaring and beating his chest.”
No director or talent have been attached to the film just yet, but check here for future updates on the project. Legendary has given the film a November 4, 2016 release date.
