The cast of director Jordan Vogt-Roberts’ Kong: Skull Island continues to get more and more impressive, with John Ortiz (Jobs, The Finest Hours) and Shea Whigham (Agent Carter, Boardwalk Empire) acting as the latest additions to the highly anticipated 2017 movie. Unfortunately, there’s currently no word on the characters they’ll be playing.
While Michael Keaton and J.K. Simmons were forced to drop out of the project earlier this year, the impressive line-up of actors set to star in Kong: Skull Island includes Tom Hiddleston, Brie Larson, Samuel L. Jackson and, John Goodman. Production is expected to begin later this Fall.
Kong: Skull Island follows a man (Hiddleston) who travels to the mythical island and home of the king of the apes. There, a team of explorers ventures inside what they find to be a treacherous island, and the story apparently honours the King Kong lore but in a different time period (which, if rumours are to be believed, will be the 1980s).
Following the release of Kong: Skull Island, Legendary is planning on releasing a Godzilla sequel ahead of a crossover movie which will pit the iconic beasts against each other on the big screen.
