Alongside the announcement of a sequel to Gareth Edwards' Godzilla, Legendary shocked and surprised audiences during their Saturday afternoon panel at San Diego Comic Con last weekend with the teaser trailer for Skull Island.
Fans no doubt know that Skull Island is the home of King Kong.
Set for release on November 4th, 2016, this film is not expected to be a sequel to Peter Jackson's 2005 epic. Nor is it believed to be a reboot. However, it is likely the film will feature the giant ape in one form or another, given that he was seen roaring at the end of the teaser trailer showed at Comic Con.
New information reveals that Godzilla scribe Max Borenstein is writing the script for Legendary, which the company has offered to director Joe Cornish (Attack the Block).
The island, which gets its name from an imposing skull shaped rock formation, was featured in the 1933 classic and is home to a variety of prehistoric life, and a primitive society of humans.
During the panel, Legendary commented that the film will allow them to “take audiences deeper inside the rich world with a style and scope that parallels other Legendary productions.”
While little else was revealed, it appears as though Legendary is shooting to bring the Big Ape back to theaters in November 2016.
Now, this begs the question, one all of us are no doubt asking: When do we get to see a Godzilla v. King Kong remake?
Until next time, Infinite Earths fans!
