Tom Hiddleston protagonizará Skull Island, el reboot de King Kong

Tom Hiddleston (“Loki” en las películas de Marvel) será el protagonista de Skull Island, el reboot de King Kong que Legendary Pictures anunció en el San Diego ComicCon. También revelaron que Jordan Vogt-Roberts, quien dirigió la controversial y popular The King of Summers, será el director de este filme que tendrá un libreto de Max Borestein, quien tiene experiencia con monstruos pues escribió el guion de la tremenda Godzilla.

Aunque no dieron detalles, Skull Island parece ser una precuela, o mejor dicho, una película de origen en vez de un remake de la historia que ya conocemos. Aparentemente la mayor parte de la historia ocurrirá en la misma isla y veremos el comienzo del gigantesco gorila. Aunque una de los atractivos de King Kong es precisamente que su mera existencia es un misterio, siempre pdoemos darle la oportunidad a que alguien nos cuente de donde vino. Como quiera, nada más con tener a Tom ya me vendieron la película.

¿Qué dicen ustedes?

El comunicado oficial:

Legendary announced its plans to make a feature film based on the cinematic origins of King Kong during this year’s San Diego Comic Con with an original draft of the script by Max Borenstein. Previous works have touched on the island, but staying on and exploring this mysterious and dangerous place offers Legendary the opportunity to take audiences deeper inside this rich world with a style and scope that parallels other Legendary productions. Universal Pictures will distribute the film on November 4, 2016.
