The reason for Universal's refusal to participate in the creation of the movie "King Kong: Skull Island" was not only the scheme of financing the project proposed by the Legendary studio, but also the mention in the script of the movie of the secret government service "Monarch", which appeared in the movie of the Warner Bros. "Godzilla".
Thus, the head of Legendary Thomas Tull was going to set the stage for the subsequent creation of the movie "King Kong vs. Godzilla", uniting two classic monsters. Naturally, Warner Bros. was not ready to support this idea, as it was a movie project of a competing studio.
In addition, the Universal studio was skeptical about the idea of increasing the size of King Kong so that he could in the future become a real competitor to Godzilla. Ultimately Universal pulled out of funding for Skull Island and allowed Tull to offer Warner Bros. The conditions under which the latter will be able to use the image of King Kong are not specified.
As a reminder, "King Kong: Skull Island" will be released on March 10, 2017. Corey Hawkins, Jason Mitchell, Brie Larson, Tom Hiddleston, Samuel L. Jackson, Toby Kebbell, John C. Reilly and other actors have agreed to play key roles in the movie.
