Legendary rebooting King Kong with 'Skull Island' in 2016


Peter Jackson's King Kong ain't got shit on this reboot

When Legendary Pictures brought back Godzilla, one of my first thoughts was "Where the hell is King Kong?" Now I finally have an answer. Although King Kong took a shot at a reboot a few years back with Peter Jackson, it focused more on sentimental stuff than I would've liked. While I respect it for doing a lot of things well, I really just wanted to see King Kong be more of a badass. 

Luckily, I'll get my chance. During a Comic-Con panel last weekend, Legendary confirmed they're working on a King Kong reboot titled Skull Island. There are no other details as of yet (but there was a brief teaser for those in attendance), and the film is scheduled to release November 4th, 2016. I hope this means we're that much closer to another King Kong vs. Godzilla film.
