KONG: SKULL ISLAND Director Promises The Film Will Have The Biggest Kong Ever
I'm extremely curious about Kong: Skull Island, the upcoming action film from The Kings of Summer director Jordan Vogt-Roberts. From the brief early look at footage we've seen, the setting and the cast look amazing, so I'm looking forward to seeing if Vogt-Roberts can up the ante in a big way from his previous indie movie to a massive hundred-million-plus budgeted blockbuster. (Colin Trevorrow did it with Jurassic World and Gareth Edwards did it with Godzilla, but Josh Trank proved it's not always an easy task.)
But the budget and the sets aren't the only things that are going to be big about Kong: Skull Island. Speaking at a CineEurope presentation (via THR), Vogt-Roberts made a big promise about the movie's main attraction:
"This is going to be the biggest Kong there's ever been," boasted director Jordon Vogt-Roberts. "Not 10 foot or 30 foot, but a 100-foot ape."
It's unclear at this point whether Kong ever actually leaves Skull Island in this movie, but even if he stays put for the whole film, it should still be pretty stunning to see a 100-foot ape stomping through the jungle. Kong: Skull Island stars Tom Hiddleston, Brie Larson, Samuel L. Jackson, Corey Hawkins, Toby Kebbell, Jason Mitchell, and John Goodman, and it arrives on March 10, 2017.
