Spider-Man actor J.K. Simmons has now become the second actor to be officially cast in Kong: Skull Island. With the story being kept under wraps, there are no details on who Simmons's will be playing in the upcoming reboot from Universal and Legendary Pictures.
Simmons joins Tom Huddleston (The Avengers) in the film, which appears to be moving ahead rather nicely.
While we may not have much to go on story wise, a new synopsis of the film has been released and reads as follows:
In the spirit of its worldwide blockbuster Godzilla, 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, upcoming Warcraft) will produce and Alex Garcia (Godzilla) will executive produce. The film will be released in 3D and IMAX 3D by Universal Pictures.
Godzilla scribe Max Borenstein and Flight writer John Gatins are writing the film, which will be directed by Jordan Vogt-Roberts. It hits theaters on March 10th, 2017.
