Comic-Con: Legendary Announces 'King Kong' Movie 'Skull Island'

Legendary Pictures will travel back to King Kong's home island to show his origins in 'Skull Island', coming November 2016.
Shortly after Legendary Pictures announced its monster line-up for Godzilla 2, which includes Mothra, King Ghidorah and Rodan, they announced that they will also be bringing King Kong back to the big screen in Skull Island.

Could a new Godzilla vs. King Kong movie be far behind?

Skull Island will travel back to Kong's home island and show his origins, along with some of the other fantastical creatures and monsters that live there. The film will be released on November 4, 2016.

Legendary had this to say about the movie:

Previous works have touched on the island, but staying and exploring this mysterious and dangerous place offers Legendary the opportunity to take audiences deeper inside this rich world with a style and scope that parallels other Legendary productions.

Skull Island comes to theaters November 4th, 2016 and stars Tom Hiddleston. The film is directed by Jordan Vogt-Roberts.

    Universal Studios is currently clearing out land behind their Jurassic Park zone at Islands of Adventure. There has been a rumor for sometime now that they are planning to build Skull Island there. Now it all makes sense now that this has been announced.
