Legendary made fans of big monsters very happy with the news on the upcoming GODZILLA sequel which will feature Mothra, Rodan, and Ghidorah, but that isn't the only giant-sized suprise they had in store for folks in Hall H today at San Diego Comic-Con.
Legendary Pictures concluded their Comic-Con panel with a surprise announcement that they’re already hard at work on new King Kong film entitled SKULL ISLAND, unveiling a short teaser for the previously unannounced film. Equally as cool, they also revealed a release date for SKULL ISLAND: November 4, 2016.
From the studio’s post-panel release:
“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.”
No director or casting details have yet been released.
This is actually quite cool news as I'm as big of a fan of KING KONG as I am of GODZILLA. Could this mean that Legendary is building up to a KING KONG vs. GODZILLA movie, or is that just wishful thinking?
