Everyone is aware of King Kong’s story, right? The monstrous ape with a heart of gold who saved the girl in distress from some evil predators (read T-Rex). However latest updates have revealed the story of “Kong: Skull Island” and it is a tad bit different from what one would have expected.
According to Cinema Blend, when the news about “Kong: Skull Island” adding another cast member came out, a little plot about the movie was also revealed. The latest cast member to be added to the movie is John Goodman and the role that he is going to portray in the movie will prove to be yet another outstanding one. According to the plot that has been revealed, the story follows the journey of a man who goes to this mysterious island in search of his brother who gets stranded there.
“Thor: Ragnarok” star Tom Hiddleston is going to play the role of the man in search of his brother who visits the island because it is believed that the island holds the secret to cure every disease, every illness there is in the world. It is being reported that this secret is actually a mythical serum present on the island, which also happens to be the home of the monstrous ape. As far as John Goodman’s role is concerned, he will be playing the role of Randa, a Government official who leads the expedition to this mysterious island.
The story has in fact based itself on the older one where a group of people travels to a mysterious island but only this time around, characters have different motivations. Tom in one of the interviews mentioned that there is a heroic element to his character, going to a rather dangerous island to save his brother can be considered heroic in nature. So if Tom’s character is heroic in nature then perhaps John Goodman’s character could be on the antagonistic side. He might be travelling to the island so that he can get his hands on the mythical serum and make some green for himself.
The Hollywood Reporter added that “Kong: Skull Island” will be an origin story of the ape and the film is expected to begin principal photography in fall.
