Now this should be interesting!!!  Legendary Pictures has recently cast acting superstar Samuel L. Jackson in a upcoming film about the origins of King Kong, titled “Kong:Skull Island.”

According to IndieWire, the film will focus on the explorers and the dangers they encounter on the island and is slated to premiere in 2017 but may have an early 2016 debut. It’s also not quite clear what role Jackson will play in the film either. Other confirmed cast members include Brie Lawson, Todd Hiddleston, Tom Wilkinson, John C. Reilly and “Straight Outta Compton” star Corey Hawkins.

“King Kong” is one of my absolute favorite films. Even though there have been several remakes and different variations of the original 1939 film starring Faye Wray, the story about “beauty killing the beast” never gets old. I think a movie zeroing in on the origins of Kong and the island he ruled will make for a great cinematic spectacle. Can’t wait til this comes to the theaters.

Stay tuned…
