The legendary King Kong will be making his return to the big screen next spring.
“Skull Island” will be the newest incarnation of the King Kong story, the new film will explore Kong’s orgins, and the producers are promising the biggest, the scariest version of the King the Apes we have ever seen.
“Skull Island” will take place in the same universe as Gareth Edwards production of Godzilla, as the studio plans to bring the two monsters together in a Batman V Superman type production.
That film is scheduled to his theaters in 2020.
Back to Skull Island
Here is the official plot synopsis from Legendary Pictures
In the 1970s, a team of explorers is brought together to venture deep into an uncharted island in the Pacific—as beautiful as it is treacherous—unaware that they are crossing into the domain of the mythical giant gorilla known as Kong.
