We’re big supporters of pretty much anything Tom Hiddleston is involved with, and “Kong: Skull Island” is no exception — especially after hearing what he recently had to say about the upcoming film.
“Well really it was [director]Jordan Vogt-Roberts has such an extraordinary vision,” he explained, when Red Carpet TV asked why he took on the project. “His story, which I know he hasn’t revealed to anyone yet, is ‘King Kong’ you’ve never seen before, and it’s very ambitious and epic and fresh and new in his vision and design and the characters are amazing.
“The chance to work with Legendary again, who made ‘Crimson Peak’, and I love what they did with ‘Godzilla’ — there are number of things, but it’s more of working with Jordan particularly. His idea is amazing and the story and the script and the studio so yeah, it’s a very easy yes.”
Due in theaters March 10, 2017, “Kong: Skull Island” is almost exactly two years away, so we still have some time before production starts. As Hiddleston said, the plot of the film remains to be seen, but Legendary has revealed it’ll follow a “new, distinct timeline.” Hiddleston’s co-star J.K. Simmons has also said the film will take place in 1971 Detroit.
