‘Kong: Skull Island’ Gets Delayed, New Actor Added

“Kong” gets delayed but acquires a title and an actor in return.

The gorilla’s staying in the mist, for now.

It seems that even with the recent delay of King Kong’s origin movie, which now holds the title of Kong: Skull Island, the production team is still trucking along with the casting of J.K. Simmons (Whiplash/Spider-Man) according to sources at Deadline. Simmons will now be joining Tom Hiddleston (Thor), who was announced to star back in September in an unspecified role — a major one no doubt. 

Set to be directed by Jordan Vogt-Roberts (The Kings of Summer) and scripted by the duo consisting of John Gatins (Flight) and Max Borenstein (Godzilla), the movie is set for a March 10, 2017 release, back from its original Nov. 4, 2016 release date.

The film is also scheduled to be released in 3D, with Thomas Tull and Jon Jashni set as producers and Alex Garcia as the sole executive producer.

Are you guys bummed that “Kong” has been delayed? How do you think Tom Hiddleston will pair with J.K. Simmons? Go ape in the comments below.
