We told you during our coverage of San Diego Comic-Con that Legendary Pictures will be bringing King Kong back to the big screen for a Skull Island movie, and now the picture is getting a bit clearer as the studio is eying a director who knows all about dealing with monsters.
According to Deadline, Legendary has offered the directing job to Joe Cornish (Attack the Block). Max Borenstein wrote the script based on the mythic origins of King Kong, where mutant giant creatures rule.
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.
The film is slated for a November 4, 2016 release.
