Rumored Director For King Kong Prequel SKULL ISLAND

July 29, 20140 Comments

Over the weekend during Comic-Con, it was announced that Legendary Pictures was producing a prequel to King Kong titled Skull Island. Audiences were shown a teaser trailer and the film already has a release date of November 4th, 2016. So who will possibly helm the next chapter of King Kong?

Deadline: “I’m told they’ve offered the directing job to Joe Cornish, who has been offered big movies since his low-budget alien-invasion breakthrough pic Attack The Block. I’m not sure if Cornish will take the job because he’s offered so much — like Universal’s Section Six, the Aaron Berg-scripted drama about the formation of MI6 Brit intelligence branch, for instance.”

We’ve seen two remakes of King Kong in 1976 and 2005, so a prequel taking place mostly on the island should be interesting.

Skull Island first appeared in the 1933 King Kong film. The fictional island is the home of Kong and many other unusual creatures – many of whom were thought to be extinct.
