Legendary Entertainment Confirms Untitled Skull Island Movie

Legendary Entertainment seems to be on a roll at making monstrous films as they have recently confirmed a movie based on “Skull Island,” also known to be King Kong’s origin, and it is set to be released on Nov. 4, 2016. Read on for further details about this scoop.

There will come a time when you would surpass the notion of thinking big and stepping beyond its borders  — the same way that Legendary Entertainment takes on the challenge of full on monstrosity as they confirmed and announced the making of the film that is centered in the place where King Kong originated, the Skull Island.


In Variety’s report, the film is not entirely expected to be a sequel or a reboot of some kind to the 2005 hit movie directed by Peter Jackson under Universal Pictures. It is, however, expected to utilize the same location and bring forth an in depth focus on the mysterious island that is home to gigantic creatures. At some point as well, they will be featuring a big ape in a similar form as the production company previewed teaser footage in Comic-Con that contained a monstrous ape roaring in the end part. It seemed only fitting that they made their announcement in the same place where they first announced the re-adaptation of “Godzilla” in 2012.

“The teaser started with the camera panning over a roiling sea, leading to an island of dense jungle and obscured beasts. The shot tracked into a skull-shaped rock out-cropping where something stirred — something big — and then rose, with the dark profile of a giant ape. He roared, he beat his chest, and the words ‘Legendary’s Skull Island’ appeared,” as described in Mashable that caused a major round of applause coming from the audiences.

This new monster movie will be penned by the same person who brought “Godzilla” to the text, Max Borenstein, and he will be basing it on the mythic origins of the mutant, gigantic ape.

According to Deadline, the company is wasting no time in staffing up the positions needed in order for the film to start rolling. Speculations suggest that they are offering the directorial job to Joe Cornish, the sudden big shot director after he released his breakthrough low-budget alien invasion film “Attack the Block.”

Be that as it may, there are many films that seemed to have touched base with the island. However, none of them offered the same in-depth storyline as this new untitled Skull Island movie is promising — taking the viewers into a more focused and deeper dynamic world of mystery filled with style and scope that coincide with other Legendary movies.

Apart from that shocking footage that only the Comic-Con attendees were only able to see, there are still no specifics as to how this movie will be panning out. Nonetheless, it is still expected to be as epic as ever once we are able to watch it when it hits the theaters on Nov. 4, 2016.
