The movie “King Kong: Skull Island” by Legendary Pictures and Universal has lost two key actors at once. According to Deadline, citing its sources, Michael Keaton and J.K. Simmons.
The reason is the conflict of shooting schedules. The motive is rather strange, since both actors were aware that movieing should start in autumn 2015. Legendary will be forced to adjust the movieing schedule to find replacements for the retired actors.
It is assumed that the action will be transferred to a different era from the classic story of King Kong. Kong himself is unlikely to appear in the frame; instead, viewers will see other representatives of the prehistoric fauna of Skull Island. The main role is to be played by British actor Tom Hiddleston. The director is Jordan Vot-Roberts, who directed Kings of Summer.
It was originally planned to release the movie on November 4, 2016, but in 2014 its creators decided to postpone the premiere date to March 10, 2017. The movie is expected to be released not only in standard format, but also in 3D and IMAX 3D.
