Back in September it was confirmed that British actor Tom Hiddleston, known for playing the demi-god villain Loki in Marvel's 'Thor,' will be starring in the movie, and Jordan Vogt-Roberts has been acquired to direct. John Gatins and Max Borenstein co-wrote the screenplay.

Although little detail has been revealed about the plot, the film studio previously announced that "previous works have touched on the island" whereas their goal is to fully depict the story behind the monster's early beginnings.

The most recent King Kong movie, Peter Jackson's 2005 epic that starred Naomi Watts and Jack Black, only started on Skull Island, but shortly after headed back to New York where many other incarnations have been set.

"But staying on and exploring this mysterious and dangerous place offers Legendary the opportunity to take audiences deeper inside this rich world," read a press release in September.
