According to Deadline, Michael Keaton, fresh off his critically-acclaimed performance in Alejandro González Iñárritu’s Birdman, is finalizing a deal to join Tom Hiddleston and J.K. Simmons for Legendary’s big-budget monster movie Kong: Skull Island.
Marvel’s The Avengers and Only Lovers Left Alive star Tom Hiddleston has signed on to star in Legendary’s King Kong origins story Skull Island, which will be directed by The Kings of Summer helmer Jordan Vogt-Roberts.
Attack the Block‘s Joe Cornish was previously rumored to be the frontrunner to direct the upcoming action adventure, but Legendary and Universal Pictures have tapped Vogt-Roberts instead. Kudos to you, man.
