Legendary Pictures Announces New King Kong Movie “Skull Island”

Briefly: Normally studio panels at comic con like to go out with a big bang, and Legendary Pictures are living up to their names with the new Warcraft and Godzilla 2 announcements. But just before they closed out their panel, the studio announced that they would be doing a new King Kong movie titled Skull Island. Based on that title alone, it seems the film won’t be just another iteration of King Kong, but rather all of the other creaters and inhabitants on the island.

The film has just been announced, so it is still in the early phases of production. For now the studio is tinkering with it, and a full cast and director should be announced once they figure out the logistics to the film.

Gareth Edwards Confirms Godzilla 2 And New King Of Monsters At Comic-Con

Godzilla 630x250

Briefly: With the box office success of Godzilla, Legendary Pictures’ President Thomas Tull came out to announce that Gareth Edwards would indeed direct the tentatively titled Godzilla 2. Not much is known about the film, but it is expected that we would see more monsters the were created as a result of the Monarch Project. Tull mentioned that it would be a while before we would see the sequel considering that Edwards is busy directing a Star Wars spinoff film, but the filmmaker is locked in for another go around with the King of the Monsters.

But it is that Monarch Teaser Secret Footage that was teased that really got the crowd roaring. We see that President John F. Kennedy is calling for the nations’ leaders to deal with the results of the experiments that were carried out on bikini island. During that footage, three legendary monsters popped up. We saw the shadow of Rodan fly through the skies, but also the names of Mothra and Ghidorah flashed before the audiences eye, which caused them to cheer even louder.

Though Simon Kinberg is most known for writing the last few sequels to the X-Men film franchise, the scribe also was tasked with writing the drafts for the new Star Wars films including its spinoffs.  And it is that connection that allowed LucasFilms president Kathleen Kennedy to hire him to be an executive producer for Star Wars Rebels, which can be seen this fall on Disney XD.  The new animated show centers on the Galactic Empire hunting down the remaining Jedi Knights, and any rebels who might be helping them.   This would be the first animated series since Disney had acquired LucasFilms a few years back.  Kinberg is in town to not only celebrate the show which is being teased at San Diego Comic-Con, but to also help promote the Disney XD’s animated show.

In our roundtable interview with the executive producer, Kinberg talks about setting up the tone of the new series, what will make this one stand out and how it differs from Rebels, working with Lucas Film, how would an X-Men and Star Wars cross would look like if if could happen, and a little bit about who the Four Horsemen in X-Men: Apocalypse could be.  Hit the jump for more.
