When Legendary Pictures unveiled their plans for Skull Island at Comic-Con in July everyone was caught off guard. There was a release date for this King Kong reboot, but not much else besides a teaser trailer. Now we know a lot more. While early reports rumored Attack the Block director Joe Cornish to be in the mix to helm the picture, those duties will now fall to Jordan Vogt-Roberts, who previously directed The Kings of Summer.
The film also now has an über-charismatic star in Tom Hiddleston, who absolutely killed it earlier this year in Only Lovers Left Alive. The film will apparently take place almost entirely on the island. Godzilla scribe Max Borenstein has been confirmed to write the script. Skull Island opens on November 4th, 2016.
